Insofar as we were able to determine, a complete review of the literature on Streptococcic viridans meningitis has never been published. Gray19 reported that, for the period 1901 to 1935, he was able to gather only 66 cases of recovery from streptococcic meningitis of all types. But two years later, in 1937, Trachsler et al.63 added 44 cases, five of which were their own. Of these 110, only five of Gray's were due to Streptococcus viridans, and Trachsler et al. had but four. Thus a total of only nine recoveries from Streptococcic viridans meningitis seems to have been reported before
