It is believed that the rarity of true pulmonary anthrax warrants the report of the following case.
REPORT OF CASE
—M. P., a Pole, aged 36, a worker in the tannery of a local shoe manufacturing concern, was recommended from the factory dispensary to the service of Dr. D. C. O'Neil, through whose courtesy the case is reported. The tentative diagnosis was bronchopneumonia. A complete history was not obtainable, but the salient feature was that the patient had been suffering for one week previously with a sore throat and a pain across the right chest. It was discovered that the patient had been handling "green" hides in the tannery for some time before the onset of symptoms, but the exact period was not ascertained. There had been no treatment of any sort, and the patient was sent to the hospital from the dispensary immediately after examination.
