Sudden Invasion Of The Nervous Centres
Categories: DESCRIPTION OF SCARLET-FEVER.
Sources: Hydriatic Treatment Of Scarlet Fever In Its Different Forms
Of the different forms of scarlatina maligna the most dangerous is the
sudden invasion of the nervous system, particularly the _brain_, the
_cerebellum_ and the _spine_, by which the patient's life is sometimes
extinguished in a few hours. In other cases the symptoms deepen more
gradually, and death ensues on the third, fifth or seventh day.
