This booklet is divided into two parts: the pathology of Rocky Mountain spotted fever in human beings and the pathologic histology of Rocky Mountain spotted fever in the rhesus monkey. The first portion closes with the conclusion that there is no essential difference in the lesions of this disease whether it occurs in the Rocky Mountain area or on the eastern seaboard of the United States. In summarizing the disease in rhesus monkeys the author concludes that the lesions in these animals closely imitate those found in the same disease in man. The photomicrographs accompanying both sections are good, and this study constitutes an excellent addition to the knowledge of pathology of Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
