I.-Many cases of pain in the lower back or leg or both, are due to some lesion of one of the lumbar transverse processes.

II.-This lesion consists in pressure upon a nerve cord and results in a condition which should be termed lumbo-sacral neuritis.

III.-The condition may be readily diagnosed, chiefly by the study of definite points of tenderness over certain transverse processes.

IV.-The trouble may be relieved by removing the appropriate process.
