The Journal of Cutaneous Diseases

November 1914

Dr. Dade told of an interesting case of a woman who had been brought to him with a very marked generalized syphilide covering her from head to foot. For the past two years she had suffered from ulcer of the stomach, the last hemorrhage being so severe that she was transfused from her brother. Six weeks later she broke out with this eruption. He denied everything, but gave a 4+ Wassermann. The possibility of her having gotten the eruption elsewhere was ruled out, as she had been so ill for the past two years, and for other reasons there seemed no possibility of having gotten it in any other way. There were naturally no enlarged glands anywhere. She had gained fifteen pounds since the transfusion of blood, and the eruption disappeared in two weeks, after salvarsan. Dr Dade said he had only mentioned this case to show the danger of transfusion from the infected source. There was no doubt but that this was the way she acquired the syphilis.
