Not illustrated. 1898 edition. Excerpt: ...(Berl. klin. Woch., Vol. XXXV, p. 295) a case of this exceedingly rare affection. The patient, 49 years old, had always been healthy; no hereditary taint, no syphilis (he suffered though with chronic eczema), had always been moderate in sexual intercourse; was in good financial circumstances. Lately he had noticed that his semen was bloody. He became weak and unable to follow his occupation. The urine contained neither albumen nor sugar. The microscopical examination of the blood revealed nothing abnormal. In a few months after the beginning of his disease he was attacked with scurvy. In spite of all treatment, change of climate, etc., his spermatic fluid remained permanently bloody, and after repeated hemorrhages and increasing cachexia the disease terminated fatally in a few months. R. The Real Value of the Brandt Bath in Typhoid Fever Dr. H. A. Hare and Dr. C. A. Holder (Therap. Gaz., March 15, 1898) have endeavored to determine the exact value of the Brandt bath in typhoid fever. Their object is not to throw discredit upon this valuable method, but to protest against its indiscriminate and routine employment. They have examined all the data and statistics--domestic and foreign--and have reached the following conclusions: T. The mortality for typhoid fever to-day all over the world, except in individual epidemics of malignant infection, is not over 15 per cent., and under good nursing and non-meddlesome treatment, about 10 per cent or less. 2. In American hospitals, under the best men in the profession, the mortality of ty phoid fever (with the Brandt treatment) is about 7.5 to 8 per cent., and sometimes 10 or even 18 per cent; therefore the saving by the bath is not the difference between 25 and 7 per cent., but between 10 more
