Abstract

The patient I present to you does not bear in his appearance the marks of active intelligence. He is an individual that never learned to read in his youth; he did his military service in a regiment of dragoons, and completed it, but still without learning to read. He drinks, but before analyzing with you this drinking tendency completely I beg you to examine the quite special attitude he presents when undressed. Permit me in passing to recommend this examination of your patients. I know very often what is called propriety will interfere, especially when you have to do with women in investigations of this sort; but whenever it is permissible do not neglect it. The physician, much more than the painter or sculptor, should have precise ideas in regard to external conformations and attitudes. A painter that represents a muscular prominence where it does not normally exist certainly commits
