Affections of the pancreas may run their course without giving any external evidences of their presence. The symptoms associated with them can occur also with other diseases, and consist of fatty stools, salivation, vomiting, diarrhœa, etc. Diseases of the pancreas, which are comparatively rare, may be present in connection with diabetes. They often persist for years without being recognised. At times they are extremely acute, and cause death very rapidly and mysteriously. The death of President McKinley was probably due to injury to the pancreas by the assassin’s bullet.
