I have present today several well marked examples of constitutional syphilis. I bring them before you not because they are rare types, but because they collectively represent some of the most characteristic phases of the disease. MACULAR SYPHILIDE.

Upon his back and sides I observed what the patient had not yet detected, viz., a macular eruption. There have been no osteocopes or noticeable fever. His throat has
