Palpitation of the heart with enlargement of the thyroid gland.

Lond. med. surg. J. (Renshaw), 7, 516-17, 1835.

This is considered the first accurate account of exophthalmic goitre, later known as “Parry’s disease”, “Graves’s disease”, and “Basedow’s disease”. An interesting fact about the London Medical & Surgical Journal is that after the first five volumes had been published by Renshaw and edited by M. Ryan, these two separated, each continuing to publish a separate edition of the same journal. Graves’s paper appeared in the series published by Renshaw. Reprinted in Med. Classics, 1940, 5, 33-36.
