ABSTRACT
Intravascular thrombosis may occur in a number of conditions, apparently for different reasons. There seems to be no common causal denominator. Changes in the vascular endothelium and quantitative or qualitative changes in the platelets apparently occur more commonly than do other changes in association with thrombo-embolic diseases. Variations in the other formed elements of the blood, changes in anticoagulant or coagulant substances, enzymatic changes, manifestations of allergy or the presence of some other foreign material also may play a part. It would appear then that an integrated attack on the problem in its broadest aspects may be rewarding, particularly in answering the questions that have been raised by considering the crepuscular thrombo-embolic syndromes.
