Transactions of the Section on Preventive Medicine and Public Health of the American Medical Association at the Sixty-Sixth Annual Session, Held at San Francisco, June 22 to 25, 1915 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Transactions of the Section on Preventive Medicine and Public Health of the American Medical Association at the Sixty-Sixth Annual Session, Held at San Francisco, June 22 to 25, 1915 I should also like to bring out the importance of making practitioners in subtropical countries more acquainted with this and all other plague-like diseases, because it has twice happened that my assistants have made the diagnosis of plague, and were ready to bring about measures which would have been sure to quarantine Honduras, and I was able to see the cases before these steps had been taken. By making the proper examinations we were able to demonstrate that the cases were not plague. The serious results of such a mistake would be greater in the case of the Central American coun tries than in the United States, because the health authorities cannot go so far with the people there as here; and after one such error it is very likely that if true plague were later found, the necessary quarantine measures would be very much delayed.
