INDEX OF AUTHORS

other parts of the body in men have been recorded in ancient and 

modern times, and were treated of by the older medical writers as 

an affliction peculiar to men with a feminine system. (Laycock, 

_Nervous Diseases of Women_, p. 79.) A summary of such cases will 

be found in Gould and Pyle (_Anomalies and Curiosities of 

Medicine_, 1897, pp. 27-28). Laycock (_Lancet_, 1842-43, vols. i 

and ii) brought forward cases of monthly and fortnightly cycles 

in disease, and asserted "the general principle that there are 

greater and less cycles of movements going on in the system, 

involving each other, and closely connected with the organization 

of the individual." He was inclined to accept lunar influence, 

and believed that the physiological cycle is made up of definite 

fractions and multiples of a period of seven days, especially a 

unit of three and a half days. Albrecht, a somewhat erratic 

zooelogist, put forth the view a few years ago that there are 

menstrual periods in men, giving the following reasons: (1) males 

are rudimentary females, (2) in all males of mammals, a 

rudimentary masculine uterus (Mueller's ducts) still persists, (3) 

totally hypospadic male individuals menstruate; and believed that 

he had shown that in man there is a rudimentary menstruation 

consisting in an almost monthly periodic appearance, lasting for 

three or four days, of white corpuscles in the urine (_Anomalo_, 

February, 1890). Dr. Campbell Clark, some years since, made 

observations on asylum attendants in regard to the temperature, 

during five weeks, which tended to show that the normal male 

temperature varies considerably within certain limits, and that 

"so far as I have been able to observe, there is one marked and 

prolonged rise every month or five weeks, averaging three days, 

occasional lesser rises appearing irregularly and of shorter 

duration. These observations are only made in three cases, and I 

have no proof that they refer to the sexual appetite" (Campbell 

Clark, "The Sexual Reproductive Functions," Psychological 

Section, British Medical Association, Glasgow, 1888; also, 

private letters). Hammond (_Treatise on Insanity_, p. 114) says: 

"I have certainly noted in some of my friends, the tendency to 

some monthly periodic abnormal manifestations. This may be in the 

form of a headache, or a nasal haemorrhage, or diarrhoea, or 

abundant discharge of uric acid, or some other unusual 

occurrence. I think," he adds, "this is much more common than is 

ordinarily supposed, and a careful examination or inquiry will 

generally, if not invariably, establish the existence of a 

periodicity of the character referred to." 

 

Dr. Harry Campbell, in his book on _Differences in the Nervous 

Organization of Men and Women_, deals fully with the monthly 

rhythm (pp. 270 et seq.), and devotes a short chapter to the 

question, "Is the Menstrual Rhythm peculiar to the Female Sex?" 

He brings forward a few pathological cases indicating such a 

rhythm, but although he had written a letter to the _Lancet_, 

asking medical men to supply him with evidence bearing on this 

question, it can scarcely be said that he has brought forward 

much evidence of a convincing kind, and such as he has brought 

forward is purely pathological. He believes, however, that we may
