Abstract

Three years ago, J. K., a Finlander, aged 35, was admitted to the Wyoming General Hospital for disease of the penis. I was obliged to amputate the organ, leaving a stump after recovery of about one inch in length. Approximately one year after his discharge from the hospital, his wife, a small, healthy Finlander, of some 30 years, gave birth to a healthy male child. Being somewhat suspicious that the child might be illegitimate, I questioned the wife very closely, and was doubly assured that such was not the case, but a legitimate product of her husband.

About one year later, she had a miscarriage, which was followed by metritis, which I treated with every indication of permanent relief.

On April 1, 1902, I was called to see her and found that she was suffering from a threatened miscarriage. On April 6, I delivered her of a five months' fetus.
