Excerpt from The Journal of the Medical Society of New Jersey, Vol. 14: January, 1917-December, 1917 Infantile spinal paralysis is a misnomer. Poliomyelitis is perhaps better though Heine - Medins Disease is preferred by some. The autopsy findings at the Newark City Hospital would perhaps show that the dis ease is a diffuse interstitial inflammation of the central nervous system and that at the present time no adequate name yet devised is appropriate. It is a disease that has caused unusual interest both to the laity and the profession and owing to the fool antics of most of our health officers produced a state of hysteria and worked untold hardships to citizens of many communities. In the 580 cases that came under my care and the care of Dr. Whitenack, I was um able to find a single evidence of its fright ful contagiousness, although in the series of cases to be mentioned, in three families only, there seemed to be a slight ground for such an idea.
