Abstract:
There are many problems concerning Pink Disease which clinical observations and experiment have failed to solve. Its cause is unknown. Its peculiar age incidence is unexplained. Its pathogenesis is uncertain. In its treatment there is nothing curative that we can exhibit. All that is left is to assist the healing powers of nature. Even so there are contradictory opinions as to how the assistance should be given. In my work in hospital and in practice I have had an opportunity of studying and treating a number of children sufferin from Pink Disease and in this thesis I shall use this clinical experience and also an examination of the literature ÿ ublished to consider the unexplained etiology of the disease. ry figures in this thesis are based on the examination of the notes of cases of Pink Disease treated in the Babies' Hospital, Newcastle, during the past fifteen sears. I have also examined a number of cases after recovery from the Pink Disease with a view to discovering any possible after effects.
