Prefaced by a letter from Professor Émile Sergent, this is an analytic and critical survey of the literature on gastric syphilis, with an appended extensive bibliography.
For discussion the subject matter is subdivided as follows: historical antecedents of syphilis of the stomach; general symptomatology of gastric syphilis; roentgenology in gastric syphilopathies; clinical aspects; the aspect of the stomach in syphilis; pseudocancerous tumor forms; gastric hypertrophic scleroses; gastric reactions of neurosyphilis; diagnosis of diseases of the stomach of syphilitic origin; treatment of gastric syphilitic conditions.
