JAMA 100 Years Ago Section Editor: Jennifer
Reiling, Assistant Editor.
The Interstate Medical Journal introduces a
valuable feature with its January issue. The whole number is devoted to a
review of the medical literature of the year 1902, each department being under
the direction of a specialist. In this way it forms a brief but convenient
and fairly full statement of the principal progress that has been made during
the year. This is to be a feature of the journal hereafter, each January issue
containing an epitome of the medical and surgical progress of the preceding
twelve months. The Journal of Cutaneous and Genito-urinary
Diseases will hereafter appear under a new title, the Journal of Cutaneous Diseases, Including Syphilis, under the management
of Dr. A. D. Mewborn of New York. The old association with genito-urinary
diseases which, the editor remarks, were in no way related to dermatology,
has been dropped. The syphilodermata belong to dermatology and have no relation
with genito-urinary surgery. Syphilis should be considered as truly a dermatosis
as leprosy or skin tuberculosis. It will be seen that the scope of the journal
is somewhat narrowed, but its usefulness will be in no way diminished and
the specialty of dermatology is certainly large enough to support a first-class
organ in this country.
