GUY W. CARLSON, M.D., F.A.C.P.
This case presents many features of interest. The disease is uncommon and rarely seen by the general practitioner. No report in the literature has been found in which a case of aplastic anemia may have been caused by exposure to products of the sulfite pulp industry. The history revealed that symptoms of intoxication were present for some 17 months prior to seeking medical aid.
The patient for some 20 years was manager of a pulp and paper company which makes paper pulp by the Mitscherlich or sulfite process, in which wood chips and calcium bisulfite enter large digesters or autoclaves
