We desire to discuss rheumatic fever under three aspects:
I. Clinical Manifestations.
1. The clinical manifestations subsumed under the name of rheumatism are exceedingly numerous. Wiesel (Med. Klin. 1923, xix, 163), found a total of eighty different pathological conditions included under the term rheumatism; we shall limit ourselves to ten, as follows:
1. Articular rheumatism or better acute rheumatic fever.
2. Some forms of tonsillitis and pharyngitis.
3. Chorea minor.
4. Cerebral rheumatism or rheumatic hyperpyrexia.
5. Certain types of heart disease.
6. Certain forms of muscular pains; growing pains in children; some forms of neuritis.
