Abstract

The results of progress in scientific therapeutics can be most thoroughly demonstrated in the treatment of laryngeal diphtheria. The uncertain pathology of this disease has assumed a clear and definite position under the light of modern bacteriologic research. Arguments on the nature of the causative microbe are past, and the claims of the Klebs-Loeffler bacillus are established. The question has been decided, and the presence of the Klebs-Loeffler bacillus is demonstrated in primary pseudomembranous laryngitis almost without exception. A careful investigation of the management of diphtheria patients, and a study of the development of new cases from day to day leads to the conclusion that the great mortality can be reduced one-half by early treatment. The great importance of more care in recognizing the causes and enforcing the means of preventing diphtheria are obvious. The causes of the rise and fall in the number of cases in our city require
