"SPOTTED FEVER." I A man named: Thomas Henry Allen, residing at the Mid-Surrey Golf Club, Old Deer Park, Richmond, has been admitted to King's College Hospital suffering from what the medical staff v d, have diagnosed as the first case of "Spotted Fever" in England. The technical term for this is ce-rebro-spinal meningitis. The disease differs from ordinary meningitis by the addition of inflammation of the covering of the spinal column. In its initial stages the disease is similar to influenza, and is first detected by little red spots appearing all over the body. In the fluid drawn from Allen's brain the surgeons discovered a distinctive microbe. A representa- tive was informed on inquiry at the hospital on Sunday night that the patient, who had been under treatment a fortnight, was making a slow recovery. No further cases have been notified in the metropolis. "Spotted Fever" is successfully treated, according to a physician of the Beaujon Hospital, in the Faubourge Saint-Honore, by a new method in that estab- lishment. Injections of a metallic solution, either into the muscular tissue or into the veins, are given. The metals employed are silver or manganese. It is stated that the beneficial results of the treatment are produced in less than a week.
