Excerpt from The Kansas Medical Journal, Vol. 7: Dec. 28, 1895
Now, when we seem to be on the verge of a new era in the treatment of diphtheria, a treatment which to give the splendid results claimed for it, must be instituted not later than forty-eight hours from the beginning of the disease, the question of an early diag nosis becomes a very important one.
There has been some discussion as to whether diphtheria can be accurately and certainly diagnosticated by a study of the bacillus which produces it, and whether this diagnosis can be made promptly enough to be of value to the physician who is treating the case. Looking at the subject in the light of the most recent bacteriological re search, we can answer yes to both ques tions.
