Some years ago I published a pamphlet (reprinted, with slight alterations, from the “St. Andrew's Medical Graduates' Transactions,” vol. iv., 1868) on Nervous Affections in Inherited Syphilis. At that time I had had bat one post-mortem examination. The patient was a girl, the daughter of the patient Joseph Mx., whose case is the second of two related by me in this Journal for July, 1874. She had epileptic fits. She died of typhoid fever, and no lesion of a syphilitic nature was discovered post-mortem. Thus I learned nothing from this case. In the “Brit. Med. Journal,”* May 18, 1572, I have reported a case of hemiplegia, previously unpublished, in a woman aged 22, who was manifestly the subject of inherited syphilis. That patient was in good general health, and is, I hope, still living.
