BUBO-XIC PLAGUE LN' CANTON.
By MARY W. NILES. Lithium Carbonate Buy M. D.,
The epidemic now raging in Canton is characterized by
glandular swellings. It is identical with the great plague
of London. Heretofore it has not been endemic Buy Eskalith in Can-
ton. Dr. Kerr has been here for forty years, and has never
seen it. Eskalith 450 Mg It is endemic in the province of Yunnan. When
it began there is not known, but the first severe epidemic
was about 1 850, according to one author ; some say it has
existed there for the past six centuries ; some Chinese say
it came by caravans from Bunnah. Twenty years or more
ago it made its appearance in Annam. It Generic Lithium Carbonate then spread into

seen in any other disease. He is pursuing his investiga-
tions with reference to prevention and treatment. How the
poison really enters the system is an open question. An
infant nursed the breast of her mother, who had the dis-
ease fully developed, dying the next day, and Lithium Eskalith yet the child
had Order Lithium Carbonate Online no symptoms, and the mortality Purchase Lithium Carbonate of the plague is great-
est among children. A man who owned a small ferryboat
rented it for dying patients. At one time the body of a
woman lay in the bottom of his boat all night while he
slept on a bed Buy Lithium Carbonate Online made of boards laid a few inches above the
dead body. He received no harm. Of all who have doc-
tored or nur.sed patients, I know of none who have taken
the disease, except as they had been already exposed in an
infected Louse. Unsanitary surroundings or direct inocu-
lation appear to me to be necessary to- the development of
the plague. The more unsanitary the Eskalith Cr 450 surrounding, the more
virulent the attack. In an infected house the rats die first.
The patient is usually attacked very severely. The tem-
perature generally rises to 105° F., not infrequently to
106°, and sometimes to 107°. There is very apt to be a
petechial eruption. Generally the glands of only one re-
gion are affected, the inguinal glands on one side most fre-
quently. Next in frequency are the cervical glands, and a
smaller number of patients are Eskalith Er affected in one axilla. In
one patient the glands in the popliteal space were the only
ones affected. These swellings are usually very painful,
and, if the patient survives, in many cases go on to suppu-
ration. There is generally twelve hours of fever before the
affection of the glands appears.
