PRIMARY AND SECONDARY;
THE TREATMENT OF CONSTITUTIONAL AND CONFIRMED
CASES, FORMULA!, AND CLINICAL OBSERVATIONS.
This work contains the result of twenty-five years' labour and observation on the pathology and treatment of Syphilis, more especially in its secondary and constitutional forms. During that period, without taking into consideration the extended field of observation which a large hospital constantly presents, I have personally treated more than twelve thousand cases. My experience is recorded in the following pages. In the present edition, I have carefully revised each line; many parts have been entirely re-written, and numerous emendations and additions have been made. The opinions and practice of others have not been neglected; and I believe that this volume presents a correct view of the present state of medical knowledge on the subject of Syphilis up to the period of its publication. I have no experience in Syphilisation, which, if all were true that is said of it, is too forbidding a practice ever to be employed as a therapeutic agent in this country.
