Reference was made in these col umns yesterday to a case of pellagra in Atlanta which could not reason ably be attributable to the eating of corn bread. The following fuller statement of the case made by Dr. Frank L. Eskridge, who attended Mrs. Barto, the patient, is taken from the Atlanta Georgian, and will be read with interest. Said Dr. Eskridge: "It is the most-typical case of pellagra I have ever seen. Every symptom corresponds ex actly with the latest expert investi gations and diagnoses of the mal ady. I was struck with the re markable clearness and distinctness of the symptoms at my first diagno sis, and you may imagine my sur prise when, after having settled in my own mind that the case was surely pellagra, I inquired if Mrs. Barto were not accustomed to eating cornbread regularly, and found that she had never eaten it, nor, in fact, had she been accustomed to eating regularly of other corn products. I could hardly doubt my diagnosis, so conclusive were the symptoms; yet, doubt it I did, in deference to the opinions at present entertained by some of the leading members of the medical profession. Again go ing carefully over the symptoms, the only possible alternate at which I could arrive was 'sprue,' a disease with quite similar symptoms and very prevalent in the tropics, not ably in the Philippine Islands. At this juncture I invited Dr. T. C. Longino, whose service in the Phil ippines has made him perfectly fa miliar with sprue and its peculiar ities, to diagnose the case from that standpoint. He assured me, with out hesitation, that it certainly was not sprue, and that he had no doubt it was pellagra. This opinion has been confirmed by other physicians. From a close observation of every development in this case and from an exhaustive reading of many works pertaining to the subject, I have been forced to the conclusion that pellagra is not essentially a cornbread disease and that it may be found under conditions that ab it solutely eliminate corn in any form from the possible causes. I find that Frappoli, a noted Italian physi cian, writing in 1771, many years before American maize, or corn, was introduced in Italy describes a dis ease with symptoms exactly, similar to those of pellagra, which he tenus V In 'pelle agra,' -or 'skin rou foci, I am almost persuaded that pellagra is a malady of the leprous, group, a microbic disease, perhaps r* I aggravated by altered corn, but by do means caused by it. The case of ; Mrs. Barto is so conclusively typ j ical, compared with six other cases j °i pellagra I have investigated, that I ^ believe if constitutes a strong re* futation of the corabread theory. From the earliest symptoms to'the present condition, symmetrical gan grene having set in this morning, the case exhibits a perfect history of pellagra, and pellagra entirely disassociated from corn bread or corn products,"—Nashville Banner.
