Recently Professor Cristalli of Naples called attention to the surprising increase in the number of multiple births occurring at Naples during and since the war. Is this phenomenon sporadic, or at least confined to the Italian peninsula; or is it, as Cristalli seems to suppose, a general finding observed in all the countries that took part in the World War? Dr. P. Balard, obstetrician to the hospitals of Bordeaux, has endeavored to establish the truth with reference to that city by collecting statistics on the number of twin births that have occurred there during the last ten years.
