First, bubonic (rhymes with pneumonic but is altogether different) is a local infection sequestered in a lymph node.
The patient has been described by some reports as having “bubonic” plague and by others as having developed the “pneumonic” form.
In pneumonic cases the bacillus may be found in the sputum of the patient.
The more fatal form is known as pneumonic plague, and in this the lungs are the seat of the disease.
It is the custom to speak of (a) bubonic plague, (b) septicmic plague, (c) pneumonic plague, as though they were three diseases.
pneumonic plague had appeared in Manchuria, and was stalking through the land.
The cause of the pneumonic plague is so little known that it may be interesting to mention it here.
pneumonic Plague is an even more dangerous form of this disease.
It occurs in several forms, of which the bubonic and the pneumonic are the most common.
Has the pneumonic or bronchitic no need of special ventilation because his microbe is of a different breed?
