Garrod, who was Osler's successor as Regius Professor at Oxford, writes: "In the 'Dictionnaire des Sciences Médicales,' published in 1813, there is an article by Fournier on rare cases which extends to no less than 120 pages. ... Fournier's article... refers to a large number of cases, gathered from different sources. Some of them are fantastic; spontaneous combustions, scorpions in the brain, and the like; some are of great interest, such as a pineal tumor, a large salivary calculus, and a family with hæmophilia; and yet others are most intriguing, such as the one quoted from Vepfer, which I have, as yet, failed to trace, of an elderly hemiplegic with yellowness of the skin limited to his paralysed side, and even to one half of his nose."
