Excerpt from On the Functional Diseases of the Urinary and Reproductive Organs A second edition of my wor On the Functional Diseases of the Renal, Urinary, and Reproductive Organs being required, I have dissociated, for several reasons, the portion referring to the kidney, reserving it for a special work, and have in the following pages revised and amplified that relating to the latter portion of the subject, adding a chapter on allied female diseases. What may be termed a metaphysical objection is sometimes taken to the term functional. The time may come when a more exact knowledge of the che mical changes which take place in the living organism may obviate the use of this word, but it has certainly not yet arrived. The sense in which I regard it in conjunction with the term disease, is as indicating simply physiological, in contradistinction to structural or pathological aberrations from the normal state. It is, no doubt, somewhat difficult to draw a clear dis tinction, but as nearly as possible this position is held in view in the following pages.
