Excerpt from Medical Record, Vol. 66: A Weekly Journal of Medicine and Surgery; July 2, 1904-December 31, 1904
Of great importance is the fact that eminent au thorities differ as to whether the temperature curves Of measles and of scarlet fever are respectively distinctive of these diseases. Scarcely any two works on medicine agree as to the temperature curves Of either measles or scarlet fever. Thus Wunderlich (eigenwarme in Krankheiten, whose thermometric studies are classical, considers the measles curve absolutely distinctive, and that of scarlet fever also, under certain limitations. The curve for scarlet fever, which I have found in my experience differs from that of Wunderlich in many particulars. And my impression does not confirm the views of Wunderlich with regard to the measles curve in many respects, but the critical deferves cence in measles and the defervescence bv lysis in scarlet fever Wunderlich emphatically recognizes. Indeed. This shrewd Observer makes this broad statement.
