Not illustrated. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ...way, of any pyogenic organisms: fortunately, such serious results are rare. The conclusions to be drawn may be summarized as follows: 1. That vaccination with normal lymph and no suspicion of faulty operation may excite various eruptions, usually due to predisposition, or an irritable, poorly nourished skin. Rarely as a generalized true vaccine vesicular eruption. 2. Existing eruptions are likely to be aggravated and are prone to spread by auto-inoculation. 3. Normal vaccination frequently exhibits marked irregularities in the character of the vesicle and in the time and place of its appearance. 4. The behavior of some of the rashes with relation to the irritation of the vaccination is excellent evidence, because of the relation of identical rashes to varioloid and variola, of the identity of the vaccine poison with that of smallpox, differing only in the fact of attenuation. 5. That certain inflammatory conditions, clearly the result of some form of sepsis, do occur, and that in the majority of cases the sepsis is not in the lymph but is introduced at the time of vaccination, or after rupture of the vesicle, and may be avoided, as a rule, by more care in technique and subsequent treatment. 6. That the probability of inoculation with serious constitutional diseases by vaccination is practically nothing. LITERATURE REFERRED TO. Hart. The Truth about Vaccination. London. 1880. Poole.
