Tiverton, R. I., March 13, 1897.

To the Editor:  —Are measles followed as a sequela by acute or chronic articular rheumatism?

A case:  W. H., exposed to measles came down sick Monday, March 1; eruption that evening. Friday or Saturday March 5 or 6, pain in joints developing articular rheumatism; at present time improving, but not able to leave bed except as removed by attendants. Query: Would W. H. have had the rheumatic attack now if he had not had measles or is it dependent upon the peculiar poison of measles. I should like the experience of the profession upon this point.Respectfully.
