The case I shall report died 12 hours after the onset of the final illness, one-half hour after admission to the Walter Reed General Hospital. The antemortem diagnosis was Rocky Mountain spotted fever. As no antemortem laboratory work of any kind had been done and as only a very superficial physical examination had been possible, the microscopical studies on the autopsy material were undertaken to substantiate or refute the original diagnosis. The final diagnosis was not made until after a careful microscopical examination of the body tissues had been completed. The author deems the case especially valuable as an illustration
