Page 133 - A PRACTICAL TREATISE ON DISEASES OF THE SKIN. For the Use of Students and Practitioners. By OLIVER S. ORMSBY. MD, Professor and Head of the Department of Skin and Venereal Diseases, Rush Medical College (in Affiliation with the University of Chicago) ; Dermatologist to the Presbyterian...
Page 510 - Spirocheta pallida from latent sources manifested a wider range of protective properties, as shown by the inhibitory effect on heterologous, as well as homologous, strains. Serums from latent cases behaved similarly. Chancre strains when used for experimental infection were not capable of developing spirocheticidal serums for heterologous organisms in the few experiments which were attempted. A negative Wassermann reaction following antisyphilitic treatment may, or may not, go hand in hand with spirocheticidal...
Page 509 - Spirochaeta pallida from a primary focus. Failure to inoculate rabbits with mixtures of serums and spirochetes was correlated with negative inoculations with the blood from such animals. In the experimental animal, spirochetolytic serum may be developed in the course of six months to one year after the infection. In the rabbit, as in man, protective substances are found at a time when the infection has attained a relatively latent state. The presence of these substances in given serums apparently...
Page 87 - Bone syphilis is the most frequent lesion of tertiary syphilis in the negro, exceeding neurosyphilis, which in white patients comprised almost half of all late manifestations. Cardiovascular syphilis is more frequent in the negro, with an incidence of two to one in colored and white males, respectively. Stricture of the rectum and elephantiasis vulvae are extremely common in the colored female.
Page 469 - MD Instructor in Dermatology and Syphilology, University of Michigan Medical School ANN ARBOR, MICH. In 1893 Mibelli 1 and Respighi 2 simultaneously called attention to a form of dermatosis not previously described. To this condition Mibelli gave the name of "porokeratosis," while Respighi termed it "hyperkeratosis eccentrica.

Stricture of the rectum and elephantiasis vulvae are extremely common in the colored female. Leukoplakia is rare in the negro. Tertiary adenitis is common in the negro. Neurosyphilis is more frequent in white patients than in negroes,. The negro is less likely to develop tabes or paresis, while the large group of unclassed cases of cerebrospinal syphilis...
Page 510 - Spirochaeta pallida at certain times in the human or animal body need not imply disease but rather a latent stage in which the spirochetes are able to survive in the immunized body. Failure to reinfect with syphilis means, from this point of view, the entry of spirochetes into surroundings which favor lodgment without setting up of visible lesions or manifestations. Immunity need not imply a condition which is incompatible with the life of a parasite. Latency, then, connotes a balance that has been...
Page 177 - C. under anerobic conditions. One was cultivated in ascitic fluid containing a piece of sterile placenta, and the other in ascitic fluid agar also containing placenta. The lower portion of each solid culture was cut out and the tissue removed.

Page 62 - Some good meaning, mystical, marvelous physician, or favored ladies with knowledge inherent, say the bane will prove the best antidote, and hence advise the forbidden leaves to be eaten, both as a preventive and cure to the external disease. I have known the experiment tried, which resulted in an eruption, swelling, redness and intolerable itching, around the verge of the anus.
