two years ago Mrs. Mary Green applied
for admission to the hospital, and re
quested that an operation be performed
for the recovery of her false teeth and plate,
which she insisted she had swallowed.
After an examination the physicians de
clared that there was no foreign substance
of the kind in the woman's stomach. She
declared, however, that she could feel tbe
teeth in the upper part of the stomach,
and an operation was performed. Believ
ing the case to be one of mental dinorder,
the doctor acknowledged finding the teeth
in order to satisfy Mrs. Green. She wa
better for a while, but again asserted that
she could feel the teeth.
