Description

Excerpt from Annual Report of the Board of Health of the Department of Health of the City of New York for the Year Ending December 31, 1905, Vol. 2 The history of the findings in hydrophobia is rather instructive. Up to 1903, notwithstanding much painstaking work on the lesion in this disease by many of our most eminent pathologists, certain bodies de scribed then for the first time by Negri (possibly seen before by one other recording observer), were entirely overlooked. And what makes it more interesting is the fact that these bodies, with the methods now in use, come out with such startling distinctness and individuality that even the beginner in studies on the nervous system cannot miss seeing them. In the research laboratory of the Department of Health Dr. Poor has corroborated the work of others in regard to the presence and specific nature of these bodies in fixed and stained sections from the nerve cen ters in cases of rabies, and, for some time, has used the section method for diagnosis. By this method, however, it is impossible to make the diagnosis before 24 hours, and no one, so far as known, has published a much shorter way of demonstrating the bodies satisfactorily.
