A NEW FORM OF THROAT INFECTION DUE TO AN ORGANISM OF THE OIDIUM GROUP.

Abstract

The amount of bacteriologic work which has been done in the last few years on the various forms of angina is so great that one would expect that our knowledge of the different forms of throat infection would be fairly complete. Nevertheless, new varieties of throat infection have been described, notably the form due to the spirillum and fusiform bacillus of Vincent, and the occasional cases of tetragenus angina. That angina could be due to the group of organisms which cause ordinary thrush has hardly been suspected, though any bacteriologist who has worked with throat cultures can not have failed to note the relatively frequent occurrence of oidia, and the French observers have reported a few cases in which this group of organisms played the part of secondary invaders.

In a recent article, Oliver1 has described a new form of throat infection, presenting characteristic clinical and bacteriologic findings, due
