Tho Indian Loprosy Report.
Tlio itiiporlnnee of tho "Indian
Leprosy ltoport," an nbitrnct of
wliieli was published in tho British
Medical Jmtrunl of April 2lh, can
hardly be overestimated. Tho pub
lication, indeed, has been long aud
anxiously looked forward to, not
only by export u but ovou by tho gen
eral public in many parts of tho
world; and this is not to be wonder
ed at when we remember that iu
more than one of our colonics legis
lation on tho Ii'pror.j' question has
been actually postponed until this
report shall have appeared. That
tho wholo question of leprosy will
not by its means be set at rest wo
may readily understand for oven
had tho Commissioners had years, in
stead of months, to devote to their
investigations, tho subject is obvious
ly loo l)ig, its intricacies too multi
form, ami the existing information
as to its pathology far too scauty for
the last word to have been said.
There can be Utile doubt, however,
that in many way the able and care
ful report before us will help to
clear tue ground aud lighten tho at
mosphere; and we may consider, in
deed, that some advance at auy rate
has been made in our knowledge, of
the disease, particularly as it exists
A few years ago I here was groat
public alarm as to the alleged onor-
i iiious innrease of leprosy in that
country iu spite of the fact, as point
ed out at tho time by writers who had
calmly studied tho subject, that
I here was no valid evidence pointing
to any such cmiclusion. Now, it the
i report will do nothing else, it will
i certainly allay all anxiety upon tliis
point; for it is therein as conclu
sively demonstrated as such things
can be, that, if anything, there has
' been iu the last ten vears an actual
decrease, both relatively and abso
lutely, in the number of lepers iu
India. It is convincingly shown, in
deed, that it i nothing short of an
absurd exaggeration to ay that lep
rosy is becoming iu auy way "'an
Imperial danger.'' Another point
upon which the intelligent public,
mind will be satisfied is regarding
I ho alleged inlluence of vaccinatiou
in rereading leprosy; although, of
course, we must not expect that tho
evidence adduced will have tho
slightest effect on the minds of anti
vaccination friends. Tho facts,
howeter, will bo generally regarded
as sutlicientlv conclusive that no
Mich relations can be reasonably
An old theory tho hereditary
causation of leprosy will also by
this report be helped on to its final
rest. It has certainly had many
supporters until comparatively re
cently, when Dr. Hauseu may bo
said to have given it a fatal stab by
his observations among the Norwo-
! gian leprous immigrants in America.
j Tho "fish theory," moreover, receives
a quietus from" the Commissioners,
' who have satisfied themselves that
I leprosy is not more common upou
tho coasts and in (he neighborhood
of largo rivers in India, aud that a
vast number of lopers in that couu
try noor partake of lisli iu any
The observations which will doubt
less raise among medical men who
have lived in leper countries tho
greatest discussion, are those relat
ing to "the contagiousness of lep
rosy. The Commissioners freely ac
cept the microbic origin of the
disease; they admit that it must be
classed among the infective and con
tagious diseases; and yet they argue,
aud with great ability, that it is
practically not contagious! In their
own words, which they print in
italics: "though lhry couaiilfr leprosy
(ill inffctivf (linfimi:, ciwnil by i pwifie
hitrillux, uiul, moreover, til n vontu
!lioun ttiitt'in"', lhei iirr of opinion that
thcrr is unt mijlicient rrideno' tlutt lep
roty h mitinhtinrd or dijl'itxrd by eon
tiigion; iiidt'rd, under Dm ordinary
human KurruundinjiH, the amount of
contagion which tsint in no small that
it may he dinrcgarded , oirf no legisla
tion ix called for on the lines either of
segregation or of interdiction of miir
riages with lepers,"
The Commissioners' adoption of
Flugge's use of tho term " novo"
iu reference to the acquisition of
such a disease as leprosy, will also
lead to much criticism; aud it seems
to us, indeed, rather unfortunate.
They simply mean by this term not
that the microbe is of no etiological
I importance, but that it "may reach
the body and set up the disease
j quite apart from contagion, if only
i the required disposition exists."
I They assume that leprosy is an eu
i domic disease, and t lint its irus is
1 widely disseminated probably in the
, form of resting spores, aud always
i ready to take on growth in a suitable
I nidus. As (hey point out, the dis
tricts in India uheru leprosy is ex
' ceedingly prevalent agree iu tho fol
lowing points; the existence of pov
i)i ty, bad sanitation, overpopula
tion aud unhealthy or moist cli-
uiales; anil we may, lo some extent,
j admit with them that tho tendency
I (ll ,-, decrease of lepiosv which is now
i evident in India may liu largely put
down to the improving social, econo
mic, aud hygienic conditions of tho
The conclusions ba-ed upon tho
observations and arguments con
tained in the report aro thus sum-
mod up by the Commissioners:
"I. Loprosy is a disease mi gener
is, it is not a form of syphilis or
; tuberculosis, but has striking oliolo
I gical analogies with tho latter.
"Z, Leprosy is not (lilliifuiu ly
hereditary transmission, and for thin
