Excerpt from The Monthly Cyclopaedia of Practical Medicine and Universal Medical Journal, Vol. 12: June, 1898 Etiology. - Although several varieties of dysentery are recognized, it is thought that the endemic, or tropical, form is due to the amoeba coli of Losch. Kar tulis found the parasite in 500 cases of dysentery and in all the cases of liver abscess examined. That amoebic dysen tery is a distinct type of the affection, and therefore not to be confounded with other varieties, has been emphasized by Councilman. Other authors have denied the amoeba a preponderating importance in the etiology of any form of the dis ease. That it is only partly responsible seems confirmed by the investigations of Grasser1 in 153 cases of true dysentery, and in which the bacillus coli and bacil lus pyocyaneus seemed to play a more im portant role. The amoeba coli was pres ent in nearly half of the acute cases and in 13 out of 34 chronic cases, but there was no relation between the numbers present and the severity of the case. In the stools of perfectly-healthy individ nals amoebae were found in considerable numbers in 20 per cent. Ulceration, produced in the colon of a cat by inject ing into it dysenteric faeces, was also pro duced by injecting sterile vegetable debm's. This sufficiently indicates that the question is by no means settled. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
