FRANKLIN A. NEVA
Clinical evidence of pulmonary involvement in typhoid and the paratyphoid fevers is well recognized by most textbooks of medicine and the rather common occurrence of signs and symptoms of bronchial irritation which is usually referred to as bronchitis, as well as the possibility of complication by actual pneumonia are pointed out. The pathogenesis of many of the major clinical manifestations in typhoid and paratyphoid fevers has been explained reasonably well on the basis of studies both in man and in experimental animals.1 However, the reasons for the pulmonary involvement which may occur are poorly understood.
