FURTHER REMARKS ON THE MODE OF INFECTION IN UNCINARIASIS.

FURTHER REMARKS ON THE MODE OF INFECTION IN UNCINARIASIS. At the session of this Association at Atlantic City last year I presented a report of an experiment on a human being to determine whether the larvæ of the uncinaria would penetrate the skin. At that time I reported that, after placing soil containing larvæ on the skin of an individual, an eruption had followed, and that, after a period of seven weeks, the eggs of the uncinaria were found in the feces. In this paper I report a second experiment, similar to the first, in which the soil containing the larvæ was placed on the wrist of an individual who had shortly before been discharged from the hospital after an operation for hernia, and the eggs of the uncinaria were found in the feces during the sixth week afterward. In the first case, it was not feasible to obtain photographs of the various stages of the eruption produced on http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

At the session of this Association at Atlantic City last year I presented a report of an experiment on a human being to determine whether the larvæ of the uncinaria would penetrate the skin. At that time I reported that, after placing soil containing larvæ on the skin of an individual, an eruption had followed, and that, after a period of seven weeks, the eggs of the uncinaria were found in the feces. In this paper I report a second experiment, similar to the first, in which the soil containing the larvæ was placed on the wrist of an individual who had shortly before been discharged from the hospital after an operation for hernia, and the eggs of the uncinaria were found in the feces during the sixth week afterward. In the first case, it was not feasible to obtain photographs of the various stages of the eruption produced on
