Abstract

Death in child-bed is justly regarded with special horror. And of all these deaths, those arising from septic influences are particularly unfortunate. The subject of puerperal septicæmia was recently discussed before the British Gynecological Society,1 with the result of eliciting some very diverse views upon the subject.
