Infentile syphillis -cutaneous affections

-JAHR Georg Heinrich Gottlieb --> In the case of syphilitic children, the skin symptoms show themselves first and foremost. Among them we distinguish: (1) The pemphigus of new-born infants, which we have described in the second division, and which usually breaks out in the palms of the hands, and on the soles of the feet, and consists of vesicles which, surrounded by a violent-red areola, reveal, after bursting, ulceration of the subjacent integuments. (2) The various pustules and tubercles, appearing either flattened, salient, tubercular, scurfy, ulcerated, or chancrous, the first-named of which, the so-called flat or mucous tubercles, mostly break out on the scalp, in the face, on the chin, scrotum, at the margin of the anus, on the thighs, hands, and feet; whereas the ulcerous, phagedæmic tubercles sometimes cover both extremities. (3) Chancres. These are partly protopathic, partly consecutive, and, in their form, deviate but little from the known kinds; for here, too,

Infantile syphilis -general symptoms Homeopathic treatment point of view

-JAHR Georg Heinrich Gottlieb --> We have already stated, in §§ 186-189, in what manner children may become affected with syphilis: (1) according to some authors, at birth (which we feel disposed to doubt, see § 213), while passing through the vagina and vulva where syphilitic ulcers are seated (syphilis adnata); or, (2) in consequence of one of the parents or both having syphilitic symptoms on the sexual parts at the moment of conception (syphilis congenita); or, (3) in consequence of father or mother, although apparently in perfect health, being tainted with latent syphilis (syphilis hereditaria). On this occasion we have directed the reader's attention to the general symptoms by which hereditary syphilis in distinguished from congenital syphilis, as well as from that which is acquired at birth; nevertheless, we deem it advisable to once more present a cursory view of the symptoms which characterize infantile syphilis in either of the above-mentioned forms. In general,

Pathological nature of syphilis: -pathological unity of the syphilitic phenomena

-JAHR Georg Heinrich Gottlieb ALTHOUGH, in treating of the secondary phenomena of syphilis, we have taken the existence of this disease for granted, and have deemed it unnecessary to adduce corroborated evidence in its favor as an idiopathic pathological condition, yet, on the other hand, we must not forget that more than one reputable author not only denies the venereal origin of the syphilitic phenomena, but rejects even their idiopathic nature, and their derivation from one and the same pathological unity, even as a great many of Hahnemann's desciples deny even to this day his doctrine, that psora is the fountain head of most chronic diseases. In order not to omit anything in our argument concerning syphilis, we will therefore state what seems to us the irrefutable truth in this respect. Casting only a superficial glance at both the primary and secondary symptoms of syphilis, we see at once that, owing to the peculiar pathognomonic character of each of the primary symptoms, it
