Excerpt from Long Island Medical Journal, Vol. 7: January-December, 1913
Coleman and Buxton have reviewed 1602 cases including 123 of their own and find that 75 per cent. Gave positive results. This per centage does not fully indicate the value of the test for diagnostic purposes. The highest percentages will always be found in the first week, when the Widal reaction is negative, or positive in only a small per cent. Of the cases. As will 'be seen from some of the reports which will be reviewed, the two methods of diagnosis of typhoid fever, viz., the Widal reaction and the blood culture complement each other and may be made simultaneously.
