Though Psoriasis is one of the most common diseases of the skin, and very widely distributed, yet when we read the descriptions given by the standard authorities on Dermatology, we cannot help being at once struck by the manifest conflict of opinion concerning almost everything connected with the disease. This is more particularly marked when we study the accounts of the histo-pathology, and aetiology, and as a natural consequence, opinions as to the details of the best methods of treatment differ widely also. This work was therefore undertaken for the purpose of endeavoitring to clear up some points in the histepathology, and if possible to determine at least the probable aetiology; and in order to aid us in arriving at logical conclusions with regard to the subjects under discussion, we have added an account of the most approved methods of treatment and the symptoms and progress. For completeness'sake we have given also the prognosis and diagnosis. Though we have found it necessary- to make a critical resume of what has heen written upon the whole subject, taking in order the headings under which a disease is usually described,we wish to draw particular attention to that portion devoted to the histo-pathology and aetiology of the disease, and with regard to the latter especially to the discussion of the relative merits of the neurotic and parasitic theories of origin.
