The Incidence of Chronic Infective Processes in Mental Disorder

  • T. C. Graves (a1)

The study of chronic septic or latent infection has in general medicine and surgery advanced to such an extent that it is here only possible to deal with a moiety of the subject, and I consequently propose to deal principally with the chronic sepsis met with in the head and female genital tract, my object being to demonstrate and discuss a few of the clinical types met with in those parts of the body.
