Undulant fever has received considerable attention in the medical literature, especially since the notable discovery by Alice Evans1 of the relationship of the Micrococcus melitensis of Bruce to the Bacillus abortus of Bang. There are still many unsolved problems relative to this disease and, in our present formative stage of investigation, we should hesitate to draw conclusions from presumptive evidence.
