What is the probability of infection from contact by kissing or sexual intercourse with a person known to be syphilitic ? xiii CHAPTER X PRINCIPLES OF THE TREATMENT OF SYPHILIS PAGES Prevention — General principles of treatment — The routine treatment: Hygiene ; lodids do not prevent relapse ; Mercury does prevent relapse; Mercury is a tonic; In the routine treatment tonic doses of mercury are more effective than poisonous doses; So long as a sufficient amount of mercury is exhibited it matters not whether it is given by the mouth, by the skin, or by injection; The symptomatic treatment: For early secondary lesions mercury; for early painful symptoms iodid ; Gummatous lesions may be cured by iodid but better by mixed treatment ; Sclerotic lesions and lesions difficult to classify require mixed treatment; Lesions of the nervous system require treatment for short' periods with intermissions of hygienic treatment; Symptomatic treatment should always be vigorous and continued after the lesion has apparently healed; Vigorous treatment is that which effects prompt improvement; Local treatment avails little . 13S-150 CHAPTER XI THE ROUTINE AND SYMPTOMATIC TREATMENT The routine tonic treatment: How to administer treatment; The Vigorous interrupted method ; The modern interrupted method ; The continuous tonic treatment ; Method of administering mer- cury; Tonic treatment; Tonic treatment after late relapses; When to begin routine treatment — Treatment of the lesions of syphilis 1 51-160 CHAPTER XII PHYSIOLOGICAL EFFECTS AND TOXICOLOGY OF MERCURY Beneficial effects of mercury — Toxicology: Salivation; Treatment of salivation; Entero-colitis ; Nephritis; Dermatitis; 111 effects of prolonged mercurialization ; Contraindications . 1 69-1 9 1 CHAPTER XIV THE l ODIDS: MIXED TREATMENT Therapeutic indications — lodism: Coryza; Indigestion; Acne and other skin lesions; Toxemia; Salivation; Neuralgia; Edema; Other lesions— Method of administration and dosage: The one hundred per cent solution; The minim drop; The time of ad- ministration ; Dilution ; The diluent ; Prevention of iodism ; Sub- stitutes for potassium iodid ; Dose ; Duration of treatment ; How to increase the dose — Mixed treatment — The test course . It usually lasts from four to six years; but during this time abortions, syphi- litic children, and healthy children alternate in a most confus- ing succession.
The world's great authorities, Fournier, Neumann, PREFACE IX Lang, Hutchinson, Finger, and Taylor — to mention only a few to whom a special debt is due — have been drawn upon freely for information, and reference upon disputed points has been made for the convenience of the student to the latest, the most comprehensive, or the most accessible monographs. Zabriskie, those upon Syphilis of the Nervous System ; Dr. ' Rosinski ( "Die Syphilis in der Schwangerschaft") offers the latest con- tribution to this side of the argument. Let us, therefore, array the evidence upon each side.
Thus we hope to spare the reader aimless divagations among the litera- ture, and ourselves the laborious sciolism of copious bibliography. Hurd has reviewed the chapters upon Syphilis of the Nose, the Throat, and the Upper Air Passages ; Dr. In favor of paternal heredity is alleged the obvious fact that father and child are certainly syphilitic, the mother apparently sound.
Concerning the matter herein set down, it is impossible to be egotistical. Middleton, that upon Syph- ilis of the Eye ; and Dr. Finally, while including in my general debt of gratitude all those whose writings or whose illustrations upon syphilis I have been able to lay my hands on, I must acknowledge a more pre- cise indebtedness to the many others who have lent kindly per- sonal aid to the matter in this volume : to my father, facili principi ; to my associate. Chetwood, for privilege to tabulate cases observed by him, as well as for the keen interest with which he has shared the labor of testing various methods of treatment; to Drs. g., by a kiss or in suckling), or from an indifferent person (e. In these two latter instances (4 and 5) the disease in the infant is acquired syphilis, differing from hereditary syphilis in the presence of a chancre at the point of inoculation, and the absence of the grave visceral lesions of fetal syphilis. But pathologists have always maintained at least an attitude of doubt concerning this unique seminal transmission which is not even alleged for any disease except syphilis. pallida be found ; Distribution and fate — Experimental syph- ilis: Inoculation; Prophylaxis; Inoculation immunity; Serum diagnosis and treatment 22-34 CHAPTER IV THE NATURE OF SYPHILIS The contagiousness of gumma: Persistence of spirocheta — Cause of relapses: Trauma and syphilis; The cause of parasyphilids^ Immunity: Racial immunity; Is our race immunized? In so long a series syphilis plays, as might be expected, the same pranks as in its course in the individual. Most exceptionally, the woman recently infected with syphilis and untreated may bear only healthy children. As a rule, the recently infected woman bears at least one syphilitic child, but, if well treated (probably) bears healthy ones thereafter. If not treated, she usually has several miscarriages be- tween the fourth and seventh months, two or three children who die at birth or within the first three months of their lives, and others who survive — syphilitic. — Hereditary syphilis — Clinical types of the disease: Mild early syphilis ; Malignant early syphilis ; Mild but persistent syphilis ; Relapsing syphilis ; Malignant late syphi Us ; Mild late syphilis CHAPTER III ETIOLOGY OF SYPHILIS The Spirocheta pallida: Methods of staining; Diagnosis; Where may 5. Thus syphilitic children — aborted, stillborn, dying in infancy, or living in spite of the infection — may follow one another for ten, fifteen, even twenty years. In certain of the views advanced, where this treatise differs from the majority of text-books, I am willing to share the respon- sibility with my son. Yet it is perhaps too much to say that even these cases have been intelligently treated. only 2 — escaped bearing at least one syphi- litic child ; and this exception is fully compensated for by 3 who, before realizing they had the disease themselves, infected SYPHILIS AND MATERNITY "67 a child whom they had previously brought into the world healthy. All have received treatment at our hands, but a large minority have received most of their treat- ment, and especially of their important early treatment, at the hands of others.
