Strange Disease?

10/26/2021 10:45 PM

I ran into a total "dead End" pun intended. about a disease that killed a relative. Way back when.

I have tried every search possible and can not find out what this disease may have been here is the image and disease name., can anyone help me learn what it was?

The image said she died from "Perelouiles"

What was her name? Looks like Catherine M CRON then I can't get the last two or three letters.

Yup on the Cronin,

Thanks for the Attempt to identify this disease. But none of those links, did I find

"Perelouiles"

I bet it's one of those old names for a disease that is even still around like

"Consumption"

Which is Tuberculosis,

But that Perelouiles is totally drawing a he he he "Dead End"

I think it's a misinterpretation of the spoken word or mistranslation of some doctors' scrawl...I have never seen or heard of a disease or condition known as "Perelouiles", even in a foreign language...so you have to make an educated guess...it could also be infantile paralysis, or called poliomyelitis at the time....but I thought peritonitis was the closest match....

You have several sources of "noise" here. It could be an archaic name, incorrect spelling, illegible handwriting, etc...

In Russian it translates to 'overflowing forest'....that could mean cystic fibrosis...but that's a stretch...

Upon closer inspection, the writing is clear.

This hardly lends any credence, now if it was on the death certificate written this clearly, then you might have something....but we don't know the source of this...remember in this time period only about half the people could read and write....and when it came to medical terminology well...few

The way this is written they could be talking about the photograph came from perezquiles, a photographer of the time...

It might not be the cause of death at all....

I still like SE's idea, missing stroke on 'Z' and 'Q'...

I came to the same conclusion.

I tried to research the names. Cronin is an Irish surname but Turkin is Russian. So, going to Google Translate, I found that perelouiles means "overflowing forest" in Russian, which seems to make it a surname or a place.

So, the writing is saying that the photograph came from a Russian guy named Perelouiles or from a place named Perelouiles.

Can't find a place named Perelouiles though.

I vote for peritonitis, common enough even today but treatable with antibiotics they didn't have then. Often a result of ruptured appendix.

The letters match up, as I expect this is a copy from some handwritten document: the uncrossed ts are the ls, the n is easily mistaken for a U, and the writer didn't know his pere from his peri.

With apologies for asking the obvious, are you not able to get a copy of her death certificate?

I believe it refers to peritonitis, common complication of gullbladder rupture due to gullstones, also who wrote this, suffered from periwhiskitis and mild dyslexia. And I do have some suspicions about her haidresser and the photographer. S.M.
