The Treatment of Myxódema and Cretinism, being a Review of the Treatment of these Diseases with the Thyroid Gland, with a Table of 100 Published Cases

  • Cecil F. Beadles (a1)
Extract

I propose in the following paper to review briefly the treatment that has recently been made use of in myxódema, and compare the several ways in which it has been carried out, after a few preliminary remarks on the pre-thyroid methods.

The most important discussions that have yet taken place are those at Nottingham in July, 1892 (in the early days of the new thyroid treatment), and Edinburgh, February 15th and 16th, 1893. To the reports of these I would direct your attention. I understand that at the annual meeting of the British Medical Association, at Newcastle, in August next, Prof. Horsley has promised to open a discussion on “The Thyroid.”

These include 40 cases referred to at the Edinburgh Med.-Chir. Soc. on February 15th and 16th, 1893, but not the 50 cases which were then mentioned as known to exist about the neighbourhoods of Edinburgh and Dundee.

“On a Cretinoid State supervening in Adult Life in Women,” Clin. Soc. of London, 1873.
