Editors: Ben S. Wheeler
Book Description:
Diphtheria is an acute infectious disease caused by toxigenic strains of Corynebacterium diphtheriae, acquired by contact with an infected person or a carrier; it is usually confined to the upper respiratory tract, and characterized by the formation of a tough false membrane attached firmly to the underlying tissue that will bleed if forcibly removed. In the most serious infections the membrane begins in the faucial area on one tonsil and may spread to the other tonsil, uvula, soft palate, and pharyngeal wall, followed by the larynx, trachea, and bronchial tree, where it may cause bronchial obstruction and death by hypoxia. Diphtheria also occurs in a cutaneous form and may rarely involve the eyes, middle ear, buccal mucosa, genitalia, and umbilical stump, usually secondarily. Systemic effects, chiefly myocarditis and peripheral neuritis, are caused by the exotoxin produced by C. diphtheriae. This new book presents new and leading research in the field.
