Barbillion has written a long article on the so-called growing fever of children. His conclusions are that the fever of growth no more exists than does a fever of obesity or of senility. The symptoms which have been grouped under this head are due to a great variety of causes, such as are seen in ephemeral fever, stomach troubles, acute osteomyelitis and other pathological lesions.—Rev. Mensuelle des Maladies de l'enfance, January, 1892.
