Abstract

In a disease so prevalent and wide-spread as typhoid, necessarily lesions of any and all systems occur, some of which may be regarded as accidental and casual, while others from the comparative frequency with which they exist must be looked upon as in the nature of complications.

Of these germs streptococci, staphylococci and pneumococci, play a leading part; they also contribute largely to what might be called the complications proper, while late reports show that the typhoid bacillus itself is amply able to produce some of
