Description

Excerpt from A Practical Synopsis, of Cutaneous Diseases, From the Most Celebrated Authors: And Particularly From Documents Afforded by the Clinical Lectures of Dr. Biett, Physician to the Hospital of St. Louis, Paris There are no diseases that have been, and still continue to be involved in so much obscurity, as those which constitute cutaneous pathology. This appears the more extraordinary, as thereis no part of the system whose phenomena are morereadily observable, for they'manifest themselves in characters constant ly appreciable to the sight, and moreover, are so frequent that they are every moment presented to the observation: but is it not this very frequency and the facility with which their exist ence is verified, one great cause of the confusion which has reigned among'this class of diseases? Here, as in many other parts of medicine, the multiplicity of facts has only tended to encumber the science - can it be otherwise, when the same diseases observed at different stages are described as dissimilar affections according to the classification to which they were subjected, classifications in themselves defective and vicious; or are thrown together without order or any attempt to group them.
