Page 315 - ... Europeans than any other tropical skin disease. This name dhobie or washerman's itch has been given on account of associating it with the infection of the underclothing while being washed in the pools or streams along with the garments of those who have this skin disease. This, like every other widespread view, has probably some foundation but cannot be verified. It is the eczema marginatum of Hebra. This affection is caused by various species of Epidermophyton. This genus differs from Trichophyton...
Page 228 - Beans, peas or other legumes, known to prevent beriberi, should be served at least once a week. Canned beans or peas should not be used.
Page 216 - Philippines, is an infectious disease or whether it is one which has its origin in disturbances of metabolism, due chiefly to the prolonged use of polished rice as a staple article of diet. The experiments were carried out in Bilibid prison.
Page 101 - Entamoeba coli 1. Cyst smaller. 2. Cyst less refractive. 3. Cyst usually contains elongated refractive bodies known as "chromidial bodies.
Page 360 - Count the leukocytes in the three upper or lower 1 sq. mm. squares, divide by 3 to obtain an average per sq. mm., multiply by 10 for the content of a cubic millimeter and then by 20 for the dilution. (Blood to 0.5; diluent to 11.) This can be done mentally and requires no calculation on paper. Having counted the leukocytes, again go over the same portion of the ruled surface and count the polymorphonuclears and' estimate the percentage of these to the total leukocytes.

Shake, add a few drops of Lugol's solution and filter. Fluorescence in the filtrate shows the presence of urobilin. The degree of blood destruction is indicated by the intensity of the fluorescence. Bile Pigments.
Page 389 - With further testing it is found that a 1 to 40 dilution shows a perceptible ring in just two minutes. This final and successful dilution multiplied by 0.0033 gives the percentage of albumin in the urine (40 X 0.0033 = 0.13%). Should it be desired to determine the nature of the proteids present either in urine or in exudates or transudates the following method is applicable. Determine the percentage of total proteid by the method employed above. Then throw down the globulins by the addition of an...

Note larger size than E. histolytica cyst, 8 ring form nuclei and absence of chromidial bodies. (2) Motile E. histolytica from acute dysenteric stoo..
