The authors have had enormous experience with scarlet fever. This work is based on the study of 3,605 cases seen within the six years ending with 1909 and especially on 2,605 cases seen during the last thirty-five months of that time. During these and previous years the authors have gathered a number of deep-rooted impressions and convictions about scarlet fever, and they express these with an earnestness and a fervor that is rather unusual in a scientific treatise. Only a single page is devoted to statistics. The authors aim rather to record their views which are the results of years of careful clinical observation. Pathology, bacteriology, hematology, etc., remain almost untouched—the work is essentially a clinical treatise.
This pamphlet is devoted wholly to what the authors call das zweite Kranksein, i. e., the second manifestation of illness in scarlet fever that occurs after the primary symptoms have abated or disappeared.
