ABSTRACT

Owing to the prevalence of infantile scurvy and hereditary syphilis, it would seem that the association of these two diseases should not be rare. In view of the scant reference to this possibility in the available literature, it occurred to me that the report of such a case might prove of interest, especially one occurring in a breast fed infant and accompanied by multiple fractures of the long bones of the lower extremities.

REPORT OF CASE 

Case.  —Penelope K., a Greek girl, aged 3 months, was admitted to the Pediatric Clinic of the University Hospital, July 1, 1918. Chief complaint, pain on moving the legs.

Family History.  —Mother has had three miscarriages, one at the third and two at the seventh month, respectively.

Birth History.  —Papular plantopalmar eruption persisting three weeks and then fading.

Feeding History.  —Breast fed throughout, with satisfactory gain in weight and unattended by digestive disturbances.
