TWO EPIDEMICS OF ALOPECIA AREATA IN AN ASYLUM FOR GIRLS.

BY JOHN T. BOWEN, M.D.,

Physician for Diseases of the Skin, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston.

THE first of the two epidemics of alopecia to be discussed in this paper, was described by Dr. Chas. P. Putnam in a communication read before the American Pediatric Society in May, 1892, and published in the Archives of Pediatrics for August of the same year. As I was enabled, through the kindness of Dr. Putnam, to observe and to study closely this first epidemic, as well as a second epidemic of much the same character apparently, that broke out in the same institution six years later, I have thought it of interest to set before this Association the facts regarding the two epidemics, and the connection that could be traced between them.
