ERYSIPELAS AND PUERPERAL FEVER.

ERYSIPELAS AND PUERPERAL FEVER. The more the study of infectious diseases rules the medicine of the present time, the more our interest is directed toward the relation which the individual diseases bear to each other. Among the infectious diseases which, according to the old ideas, are said to stand in a changeable relation to each other, are erysipelas and puerperal fever. The endeavor has been made to prove clinically the identity of both diseases by pointing to the fact that they appear simultaneously, and still further by showing that puerperal fever is said to be engendered by erysipelas, and vice versa, in the case of lying-in women. The views of the identity of both forms of disease are especially furthered by the opinions of Virchow that, anatomically considered, the course of certain forms of puerperal infectious diseases, especially in the cellular tissue of the pelvis, resemble, or indeed are the same, as in erysipelas. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

The more the study of infectious diseases rules the medicine of the present time, the more our interest is directed toward the relation which the individual diseases bear to each other. Among the infectious diseases which, according to the old ideas, are said to stand in a changeable relation to each other, are erysipelas and puerperal fever. The endeavor has been made to prove clinically the identity of both diseases by pointing to the fact that they appear simultaneously, and still further by showing that puerperal fever is said to be engendered by erysipelas, and vice versa, in the case of lying-in women. The views of the identity of both forms of disease are especially furthered by the opinions of Virchow that, anatomically considered, the course of certain forms of puerperal infectious diseases, especially in the cellular tissue of the pelvis, resemble, or indeed are the same, as in erysipelas.
