Abstract

To the Editor:  —The ocular glandular type of tularemia so accurately coincides with the clinical manifestation of Parinaud's conjunctivitis in its local and general symptoms and clinical course as to suggest that Parinaud's conclusions were well founded when he contended that the infection was of animal origin. Two cases of tularemia that I recently reported at the meeting of the Montana State Medical Association are so accurately described in de Schweinitz' textbook under the heading Parinaud's Conjunctivitis as to leave little to be added in a description of these cases.Positive blood findings as reported from the Hygienic Laboratory in Washington conclusively established the etiologic factor as that of tularemia.
