Abstract

It is the purpose here to present a short series of cases which have come under my observation, with a brief summay of the views of others on the subject, and to note any salient features which the cases here published may suggest.

Case 1.  —This case has been previously reported,1 but since the time of its publication new features have arisen. A summary of the history as far as the year 1908, the date of the last publication, is as follows: A man, single, aged 24, was seen in 1905. At that time, with a previous history of no import with the exception of the acquisition of gonorrhea, lie was seen with a typical macular luetic rush over the trunk. No primary lesion had ever been detected, but an intraurethral chancre could not be excluded. Under treatment the patient ran a devious and at times most intractable course.
