These are probably examples of autoinoculation, although the possibility of a simultaneous infection in two places must be conceded. Finger and Landsteiner conclude; "Reinoculation is successful in proportion to its proximity, in point of time, to the primary inoculation. If general infection is not yet complete, a typical chancre can be produced. but from the time when constitutional symptoms appear, it becomes more difficult to succeed. During the secondary period, the result has some resemblance to a secondary papule." F. Lambkin (73) says of the primary chancre. "It is not readily autoinoculable and only so during the first ten days of its existence.' He found the possibility of autoinoculation from the penis on soldiers within ten days of the existence of the primary sore. "After ten days I found it impossible to reproduce an identical sore or anything like it. As a rule, a small inflammatory pustule was the only result.
