A CASE OF AINHUM.

A CASE OF AINHUM. Seeing the article on ainhum by Dr. Brayton in The Journal, July 8, 1905, reminded me of a similar case which came under my care about six years ago and which was reported to the Newport Medical Society during the past year. Previous and Family History. —M. R., negro, widow, aged 53, was born in Queen Anne County, Maryland. Her mother died in childbirth, aged 42; her father was part Indian, and died of rheumatism, aged 92; he lost both toes when about 23 years old. The patient consulted me in December, 1899, at which time a band had formed around the base of the little toe of the left foot, and from a fissure formed at this point there came a discharge. The toe was swollen and painful. With cleanliness it improved and remained quiescent until 1903, when it again began to swell and to cause great pain.
