Symposium on Cutaneous Diseases in Animals
Introduction. Presented by Dr. J. V. Klauder.
Symposiums on cutaneous diseases in animals have occasionally been held at meetings of dermatologic societies in Europe but, to my knowledge, never at such meetings in this country; certainly this is the first one in the history of the Philadelphia Dermatological Society. For this privilege the society is indebted to Drs. William L. Lentz, Mack A. Emmerson and Harry M. Martin, of the faculty of the School of Veterinary Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania.There should be a close relation between veterinarian schools and medical schools in the study and teaching of diseases that occur both in man and in animals. I hope that the time is not too far distant when a chair of comparative medicine will be created in medical schools. As a matter of fact, Dr. Herbert Fox is professor of comparative pathology
