ABSTRACT

This is an interesting monograph on children born in a leprosarium.

The number of stillbirths in this institution was 12.3 per cent, a rate lower than that ordinarily attributed to syphilis in this locality. Fifty-five per cent of the children weighed under 3,000 Gm. at birth. The incidence of congenital debility was higher among the children born of mothers with the nodular form than among those born of mothers with the macular form of the disease. The mortality at the end of twelve months was 12 per cent. The causes of death are interesting; in 18 cases death was due to bronchopneumonia, in 1 to purulent meningitis and in 1 to obstetric trauma.

The children apparently developed well after birth and showed no adverse effects of the presence of leprosy in the parents; the teeth and the stature were unaffected, and congenital deformities and multiple degenerations were not noted.
