About this Item

First Collected Report on Childhood Cancer Duzan, J. Du cancer chez les enfants. Thèse pour le doctorat en médecine. [4], iv, 70pp. Paris: Imprimerie Badoureau, 1876. 238 x 157 mm. Original printed wrappers, a little worn and spotted. Corner of one leaf torn not affecting text, but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Duzan on the title: "A mon ami Gaillardan Souvenir affectueux Dr. Duzan." First Edition of the First Collected Report on Childhood Cancer. "Before the thesis of Duzan (1876), there was no collected report of the forms of cancer occurring in childhood. Lebert (1851) mentions them in his work upon malignant diseases, but out of 471 cases notes only 15 as belonging to childhood. This, however, directed the attention of authors to the subject, and Duzan was able to collect 182 cases" (American Journal of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children 17 [1884]: 333). All 182 cases were of pediatric sarcoma: 70 of the eye, 45 of the kidney, 11 of the testicle, 8 of the prostate, and the remainder divided among the bones, tongue, abdomen, brain and dura mater, lung, pancreas, liver, tonsils, rectum and stomach. Oddly, Duzan's thesis is not noted in our printed histories of cancer or of pediatrics. Rodman, "The influence of age, sex and race in surgical affections," Journal of the American Medical Association 31 (1898): 491-503; Duzan's thesis is cited on p. 493. Bookseller Inventory # 43170
