tendency to aborted and diseased products of conception. The father alone 

can perhaps transmit syphilis to his child, even though the mother escapes 

infection, and the child born of syphilitic parents may come into the 

world apparently healthy only to reveal its syphilitic origin after a 

period of months or even years. Thus syphilis is probably a main cause of 

the enfeeblement of the race.[226] 

 

Alike in the individual and in his offspring syphilis shows its 

deteriorating effects on all the structures of the body, but especially on 

the brain and nervous system. There are, as has been pointed out by Mott, 

a leading authority in this matter,[227] five ways in which syphilis 

affects the brain and nervous system: (1) by moral shock; (2) by the 

effects of the poison in producing anaemia and impaired general nutrition; 

(3) by causing inflammation of the membranes and tissues of the brain; (4) 

by producing arterial degeneration, leading on to brain-softening, 

paralysis, and dementia; (5) as a main cause of the para-syphilitic 

affections of general paralysis and tabes dorsalis.
