Abstract

The controversy so long waged as to whether myoma uteri is a cause or an effect of sterility recalls the proverbial query—"which came first the hen or the egg." Undoubtedly in not a small percentage of cases sterility antedates the appearance of myoma, but that this is not the rule will appear in the statistics reported by Playfair and Allbutt, who found in 2,035 cases of myoma uteri collected by Schroeder, Wenkel, West, McClintock and others absolute sterility in 621 cases or about 30 per cent., a percentage fully double that of the average sterility in women. Then again we have the statistics of Wenkel and Susserot,1 who reported ninety-nine cases of women with myoma uteri who gave birth to children with an average of 2.8 children to the mother or a little more than one-half the average of children to the mothers of that locality. These statistics would
