CHAPTER II. THE CONNECTION OF RHEUMATISM WITH CHOREA. Analysis of
177 cases of chorea?Comparison with other statistics?Conclusions in

rheumatism are stated separately foi; each of the three. It appears

themshortly before the choreic attack); 6 had probably had
rheumatism; 2 were doubtful; and in i the facts were not known. Of
the third series of 32 cases (6 boys and 26 gir...
