Tuberculosis in the Insane; its Prophylaxis

  • Eric France (a1)

In venturing to read before you a paper on “Tuberculosis in the Insane; its Prophylaxis,” I am deeply conscious of the responsibility of my position. The very mention of tuberculosis seems to reopen long vistas of investigation and research, which stretch far away into the distance of the earliest medical times. Since the days of Galen and Mangetus the learned in medical science have with unwearying persistence investigated and studied the pathology and treatment of this disease. To the work of these I fear I have little to add, but I submit that neither the presentment of old truths in a new light, nor the adaptation of past experiences to present needs, is without its value. It is from this point of view, then, that I have ventured to approach so vast a subject.
