My impression was deep that here, at the southern end of the Mississippi Valley, the majority of our patients with acute iritis are also victims of the specific disease. Is it possible, I have often asked myself, that in so vast a country as the United States the prevalent causes and the course of diseases may be somewhat different in widely separated areas? Or do variations arise solely from the different racial stocks preponderating, the densities of population and the unlike conditions such differences entail?
