Abstract

There is probably no more frequent source of error in diagnosis, for the physician who sees a case for the first time, than the presence or development of lesions of the skin resulting from the presence of disease in other portions of the body or due to the administration of certain remedies which are not suspected of being the cause of the lesion or which may not be known to have been exhibited. Two papers dealing with this important subject have recently appeared in current medical literature, one by Dr. Francis Packard, which was published in the Medical News for Feb. 20, 1897, under the title of " Scarlatiniform Eruptions following Operations for Traumatism," and the other by Dr. Guiraud of Bordeaux in the Archives Cliniques de Bordeaux for January, 1897. Some editorials dealing with the same subject have also appeared in recent numbers of The Therapeutic Gazette and in Pediatrics
