Excerpt from Pellagra History, Distribution, Diagnosis, Prognosis, Treatment, Etiology

This is a book on Pellagra for the student and the practicing physician. It is not merely a discussion of Pellagra, nor is it devoted to upholding any special theory of etiology.

At the present time it is impossible to have a book of this size contain the entire data concerning the disease. It is not only impossible to include all such matter, but it would be also useless. We need the essential facts of the subject-we need to know its pathology, its diagnosis, and its treatment. There has been entirely too much speculation on Pellagra, and entirely too little investigation of Pellagra.

It is a pleasure to express my thanks to all those who have studied and written extensively on the disease. Among these are Casal, the elder Strambio, Jansen, Frapolli, Lombroso, Roussel, Hirsch, Sam-bon, Marie, and the contributors to the National Pellagra Congress of 1910. Other acknowledgments are made throughout the book. I wish to thank Dr. Eugenio Bravetta, of Mombello, province of Milan, for many photographs, and especially for his aid in the study of his pathological sections, for the preparation of which he deserves much credit.

I am particularly indebted to Dr. E. M. Green, clinical director of the Georgia State Asylum for Insane at Milledgeville, for permission to use his valuable work and classification on "Psychoses Accompanying Pellagra," and to Dr. S. S. Hindman, pathologist to the same institution, for permission to use his report on the cerebrospinal fluid.

The chapter on Alimentary Tract in Pellagra includes the researches of Dr. J. Clarence Johnson, of Atlanta, on the digestive system, and I wish to acknowledge my thanks to him for his aid in the preparation of this chapter.
