Look inside the book:
This account tells of 3000 cases of this disease which occurred in 1915 among a population of less than 10,000, owing to the fact that the crops had failed almost entirely during the years 1912, 1913 and 1914. ...He realized that they presented a novel clinical picture but failed to recognize that they represented a disorder quite distinct from rickets.3 This article was followed within the next few years by reports of other German writers (Bohn, Steiner, Foerster) who, accepting Moeller’s point of view, considered these cases merely as an acute form of rickets. ...Lyabmow, in referring to the scurvy in Kazan, tells us that among 28,000 cases only a few infants were affected, and Rauchfuss made the statement at the International Congress at Copenhagen, in 1884, that although he had seen a great many cases of scurvy, he had never seen it in children one to two years of age.
