Description : 840-849 p., [1 l.] pl. ; ill.: 6 phot., 3 tbls. ; 25 cm.

Photographs : 6 albumens mounted to a folded double leaf, bound at the fold.

Subject : Thyroid — Congenital hypothyroidism ; Myxedema.

Notes :

Six photographic portraits of sporadic cretinism illustrate Dr. Stirling's paper. They are mounted to a double leaf that is folded and bound at the fold. The first 5 images are of siblings and the 6th image shows a myxedemic subject from another family. This is the second of two photographically illustrated papers on myxedema published together in the journal, the first one written by Dr. F. Norton Manning (pages 834-839). Stirling's paper is informed by several obscure bibliographical references he unearthed and that dove-tail with Manning's review of the literature.
