Abstract

According to the Swiss correspondent of the Lancet, Fräulein Hoffenhausen details in a graduation thesis the results of a histologic study of the vermiform appendix in thirty fatal cases of typhoid fever.

Less commonly specific lesions were found, but not of sufficient intensity to occasion pronounced or characteristic symptoms.
