Grimm,1 in 1925, found but thirty cases of bronchial asthma with autopsy findings and microscopic studies. Since that time, nine additional cases have been recorded: by Rackemann2 (one), Kountz and Alexander3 (three), Dehner4 (two), Steinberg and Figley5 (two), and Wright6 (one). Of this total number of thirty-nine cases, careful studies have shown2 that many of the cases earlier reported were not true bronchial asthma, while in not more than twelve cases can death be said to have resulted directly from asthmatic paroxysms. Huber and Koessler,7 in their monograph upon the subject in 1922, presented only four cases from the literature
