Excerpt from Southern Medical and Surgical Journal, 1856, Vol. 12
The subject of the present case is a daughter of Mr. B., of Li thonia, in this State: she was born in March 1851, and in Novem ber 1853 was attacked with Erysipelas, with which she was very ill, and remained feeble for some length of time. I am informed that she had no spasmodic affection during or subsequently to her illness; but it was observed, when she began to run about again, that she was lame. This lameness gradually increasing, its cause was observed to be in the foot, whose distortion grew more and more obvious until I saw her, in August, 1854. The case then presented all the peculiarities of a well-marked Talipes varus, the weight of the body resting upon the external margin of the foot; one only being effected.
