PAPERS READ AT THE ANNUAL MEETING HELD IN

COUNCIL BLUFFS, SEPTEMBER 6, 7, 1906.

LATENT PELVIC INFECTIONS.

Palmer Findley, M. D., Omaha, Nebraska. Professor of Gynecology, College of Medicine of the University of Nebraska. ATENT INFECTION is but another and better name for auto-infection, a term first suggested by Semmelweis, who said: "In rare cases the decomposed animal organic material, which causes child bed fever when absorbed, is produced within the patient herself.”

Now that child bed fever is universally recognized to be the result of microbio invasion of a puerperal wound, and not due to the absorption of decomposed animal organic matter; and furthermore, that there can be no spontaneous creation of micro-organisms within the genital tract; but on the contrary, that these germs must necessarily have been introduced from without, we come readily to the conclusion that child bed fever is always exogenous in origin and never endogenous.
