Plague As Seen in South Vietnamese Children: A Chronicle of Observations and Treatment Under Adverse Conditions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Eighty-eight South Vietnamese children with bubonic, bubonic-septicemic and septicemic forms of plague are reviewed. This disease is fulminating in children. Of the various forms of treatment available, tetracycline and chloramphenicol appear to produce a more rapid lysis of toxic symptoms than does streptomycin, and may well avert death by endotoxin shock which streptomycin seems to induce.
