THE JOURNAL OF CUTANEOUS DISEASES INCLUDING SYPHILIS
(Case VI.) F. O., a physician, forty-seven years old, weighing 210 pounds, married, and father of two healthy children, had suffered for twenty-five years from what was termed by the physicians who treated him in vain “eczema of the feet.” Two years prior to its occurrence, he had begun the study of medicine in a school in one of the Southern States of this country, and had then been advised by his teacher in anatomy to chew tobacco in order to aid in overcoming the repugnance common in the first year of medical study to the environments of the dissecting room.
