HAS TYPHOID FEVER INFECTION ANY INFLUENCE ON THE BACILLI OF TUBERCULOSIS?

HAS TYPHOID FEVER INFECTION ANY INFLUENCE ON THE BACILLI OF TUBERCULOSIS? I have heard recently of two cases of tuberculosis, as diagnosticated, which have been either cured or favorably affected as a result of typhoid infection. I submit them through The Journal to the profession for what they may be worth. I am indebted to Dr. Francis W. Gallagher of El Paso, Texas, for the notes, and I refer all investigators to him for further inquiry. I have observed that patients are, as a rule, in better health after typhoid fever than before. May it not be due to the fact that the typhoid bacillus has killed all the other more or less pathogenic organisms which occupied the body? Is there not a hint here regarding the possibility of immunity from that fearful scourge, tuberculosis? Case 1. —Mr. J. C. W. came from Wisconsin to El Paso in September, 1899. From this time until the middle of November, 1990, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

I have heard recently of two cases of tuberculosis, as diagnosticated, which have been either cured or favorably affected as a result of typhoid infection. I submit them through The Journal to the profession for what they may be worth. I am indebted to Dr. Francis W. Gallagher of El Paso, Texas, for the notes, and I refer all investigators to him for further inquiry. I have observed that patients are, as a rule, in better health after typhoid fever than before. May it not be due to the fact that the typhoid bacillus has killed all the other more or less pathogenic organisms which occupied the body? Is there not a hint here regarding the possibility of immunity from that fearful scourge, tuberculosis? Case 1. —Mr. J. C. W. came from Wisconsin to El Paso in September, 1899.
