Sample text

J. B. Sidbury,44 a pediatrician at the Babies’ Hospital in Wrightsville, North Carolina, in a littlenoticed report had described a simple transfusion via the umbilical vein in the case of a bleeding newborn in 1923. It was Diamond45 who later established the umbilical route as the safest and simplest for exchange transfusion in hemolytic disease and who, with Allen and Vaughan,46 was the first to recognize that the prevention of kernicterus was the main rationale of the procedure. It is interesting to recall that exsanguination transfusion through the fontanelle or the femoral vein was used on a large scale at the Sick Children’s Hospital in Toronto for the treatment of burns, erysipelas, and other conditions since 1921.

His forte was a thorough knowledge of the literature, which he analyzed in erudite but unconscionably lengthy reviews, complete with foreword, statement of scope and purpose, introduction, presentation of fundamental concepts, summary, table of contents, and a bibliography that in one instance exceeded 750 titles. He was Associate Professor of Pediatrics in Dr. Park’s department at Johns Hopkins University and published mostly in the Johns Hopkins Bulletin. His manner and appearance were those of a college professor or a don—mild, pleasant, serious, single-minded, a slight, gray-haired man who smoked a pipe, wore soft collars and a velvet jacket with elbow patches, and received his visitors in a drab office in the old Harriet Lane Home cluttered with books, magazines, and reprints.

Related to the semantic difficulties was the problem of classification. Ever since Hayem had introduced the color index in 1877, hypochromasia had been used to characterize certain anemias. It was soon apparent that most anemias of older infants were of this type, but the difficulty of relating morphologic criteria to pathogenetic mechanisms and of recognizing in turn that different etiologic factors could operate through identical pathways proved too much. Not until the work of Minot and Castle established the characteristic response of hemoglobin and reticulocytes to specific hematinics, and Wintrobe put the morphologic classification on the firm basis of red cell measurements, did pediatric hematologists gradually abandon terms such as “alimentary-infectious” anemia.
