In the review of the book entitled "La syphilis héréditaire," by E. Lesné and A. Boutelier (Am. J. Dis. Child.41:1513 [June] 1931), Dr. Boutelier has called attention to the following error. The statement is made that "nothing is said of bismuth or of intravenous, intramuscular or intraperitoneal therapy." This is incorrect. On page 51 the authors state that when possible the classic treatment by the injection of arsenic, bismuth or mercury should be used. These treatments are not explained because the book is devoted to masked or latent congenital syphilis, for which the authors use the treatments that they outline.
