A 1946 Study on Endometriosis

Untitled-1 copy

While doing a bit of research for a recent blog entry, I ran across a study from 1946 describing Endometriosis.  I found it fascinating!

Written by Drs. Fallon, Brosnan, and Moran in Massachusetts, The New England Journal of Medicine published the study on November 7, 1946, and I wanted to point out some quotes that I found of particular interest:

frequent
missed
private
blueberry
octo
cramps
jarring.jpg
radium
all the babies.jpg
pox
time

I encourage you to read the entire study yourself.  Groan if you will at reference to retrograde menstruation, treatment with castration, becoming a baby-factory, regression of the disease once the ovaries are removed, and…a cure. I just severely enjoyed the verbiage and disease descriptions from  70 years ago and wanted to share it with you.

Have a wonderful day!
