THE CONSERVATION OF THE OVARIES.

THE CONSERVATION OF THE OVARIES. The reflex influence of the ovaries and testicles upon the animal organism has been so long a matter of common observation in the lower animals, that it would seem needless to offer any argument in favor of any question based upon it. The effects in the human species of castration in the male are also matters of common knowledge, but those of the corresponding operation on the human female seem to be still largely a matter in dispute.

Abstract

The reflex influence of the ovaries and testicles upon the animal organism has been so long a matter of common observation in the lower animals, that it would seem needless to offer any argument in favor of any question based upon it. The effects in the human species of castration in the male are also matters of common knowledge, but those of the corresponding operation on the human female seem to be still largely a matter in dispute. At least, such would be the inference from reading a discussion at the recent meeting of the American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, reported in the October number of the American Journal of Obstetrics, where a paper on the conservation of the ovary, by Dr. B. Sherwood Dunn, was read and called forth various expressions of widely differing opinion. Dr. Dunn opened his communication with a reference to the opinion of Brown-Séquard
