ABSTRACT
The hypotheses which have been advanced to explain the immediate cause of the pain arising in intermittent claudication are examined and the reasons for accepting the accumulation of metabolites in the ischaemic muscle as the originating event are described. Details of an exercise tolerance test and the data which may be derived from it are given.
