A SPECIAL FORM OF KERATITIS CAUSED BY FRIEDLÄNDER'S PNEUMOBACILLUS: REPORT OF A CASE, WITH REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE

A SPECIAL FORM OF KERATITIS CAUSED BY FRIEDLÄNDER'S PNEUMOBACILLUS: REPORT OF A CASE, WITH REVIEW... Abstract The pneumobacillus was discovered by C. Friedländer1 in the fibrinous bronchial exudate and in the pulmonary alveolar tissue of patients with pneumonia. This organism is a short, plump bacillus, subject to great variation in size. It measures, on the average, from 0.5 to 1.5 microns in width and from 0.6 to 5 microns in length. It is gram-negative and immotile. It has no flagella or spores but possesses a capsule and grows luxuriantly on blood agar. It belongs to the general group of Bacillus mucosus-capsulatus. Strong2 and Perkins3 made important contributions toward its isolation and differentiation from other species of the same group by means of formation of gas and fermentation of sugar.
