This is an excellent summary of the psychoses in syphilis, exclusive of general paralysis. It is based on the German literature and on twenty-three well observed and carefully reported personal cases, twenty-two of them from the service of Bonhoeffer at the Charité in Berlin. Of the forty-two bibliographic references, only five are not German. The several difficult problems, clinical and pathologic, connected with the occurrence of psychoses in patients with syphilis are somewhat pedantically but quite sensibly discussed, and the author's conclusions, some of them frankly tentative, seem to be quite justified.
