The introduction of an efficacious serum therapy in meningococcus meningitis has made its early diagnosis of supreme importance, particularly in infancy, the age of highest mortality in untreated patients. Early recognition of this type of meningitis is more profitable than in any of the...
The methods commonly employed in applying the Pirquet test involve either scarifying the skin with a blunt instrument or making a superficial scratch with a needle. Some clinicians apply the tuberculin after the abrasion has been made, and others perform the test through a drop of...
