still remains for our practical guidance, that while the sluggishness of the bowels aggravates, their free action tends to relieve the haemorrhoidal malady. While the effect of inactivity in the natural evacuations upon actually existing haemorrhoids is thus fully recognised, it must not be overlooked that in a large number of persons constipation exists without any apparent enlargement of the veins of the rectum, —at least any diseased enlargement. Of this every surgeon's experience will supply him with examples. I have known persons whose statements respecting the infrequency of their evacuations were almost marvellous, and yet they were free from any appearance of piles. With such facts before us the conclusion seems unavoidable that, whatever be the immediate or exciting cause of the disease, a certain constitution of the vessels giving a tendency to morbid action,—an idiosyncracy, as it is called, must exist where the vascular disease of the rectum arises. It is only in this way that, in the present state of our knowledge, we seek to account for the existence of several other diseases,—a varicose state of the veins of the leg or of the testis, for instance, in a person otherwise, to all seeming, in vigorous health,—the tendency to the development of diseased action in the veins being in these several instances promoted, as heretofore mentioned, by the position— the dependent position, that is to say—of the vessels. It serves to strengthen this view of the subject, thatan hereditary tendency to the complaint is often traceable. Several members of the family of one of the patients whose history I have read to you were affected with haemorrhoids, andthe father of another had long been subject to the same disease from which the son began to suffer at the age of eleven or twel...
