Excerpt from The Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. 36: April 6, 1901 Fournier, of Paris, recently made some studies from the cases of syphilis coming to him in private practice. He found that fully 25 per cent. Of' all females whom he had seen in private practice had contracted the dis ease innocently and undeservedly, and in the discussion of his paper, Ricord thought that that proportion was too low. Of the married females in Fournier's practice he found that in 75 per cent. Of the cases the disease was unmistakably traced to the husband. In my own private practice I found that in fully 50 per cent. Of the females, the disease was acquired in a perfectly innocent manner, while among the married females the percentage of innocent infections would be 85 per cent, or more. Surely, then, there is reason in the plea' that some thing should be done to prevent the wholesale infection of these innocent victims of marital syphilis. But if this aspect of the subject is dark, that of hereditary syphilis is yet darker, and calls even more strongly for relief.
