Abstract

Abstract Pemphigus is a disease of sufficient rarity to permit the detailed description of a case from the clinical standpoint alone, in the hope that something of value may have been observed which will help to clarify its etiology or therapy. This and the finding of some extremely interesting histopathology in the spinal cord are my reasons for making the following report. CASE REPORT History.— Mrs. H. A. L., aged 53, when first seen on June 22, 1920, was a widow. The cause of her husband's death was not ascertained. Five children were living and well. She had passed the menopause without trouble. Her right eye had been removed surgically during girlhood, because of injury.In September, 1919, a dentist had extracted one carious tooth and treated a rather severe pyorrhea. Soon after the tooth was extracted, lesions appeared in the mouth, which were considered "canker" sores. The condition in the References 1. Eberson, Frederick: Studies on the Etiology of Pemphigus.
