In the past 19 years there have been a total of 2879 cases of meningitis admitted to the Herman Kiefer Hospital. Of this total, there have been but five cases of Friedlander's meningitis. During the last 30 years at Henry Ford Hospital there have been 498 meningitis cases of which two were of the Friedlander type. Combining these two series gives a total of 3377 cases of meningitis of which only seven were attributed to the Friedlander bacillus. Stated another way, this organism was the etiological factor in approximately one out of every 482 cases or in 0.02 per cent.
