The Bacteriological Report

     Dr. Matzinger, who conducted the bacteriological examination, succeeded in isolating from a culture, taken from the base of the abdominal wound, and from dressings received at the same time, ordinary pyogenic organisms and a gas-forming bacillus which as yet has not been fully identified. Until this identification is complete, speculation upon its possible pathogenic character appears useless.
