Diphtheria, a disease that caused breathing difficulties, suffocation, heart failure, and paralysis, was one of the most feared killers during the 1800s. During the peak years of diphtheria epidemics, 150,000 people a year became infected, and 15,000 of those died. The discovery of a treatment for diphtheria is one of modern medicine's greatest success stories, told here in gripping style. Once called "the strangling angel of children," diphtheria has become a rarity in the developed world as the fight against it continues in Africa, Asia, and central America.
Call Number: 616.9 GUI
Publication Date: 2009-03-01
Diphtheria is a bacterial infection caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae, which attacks the respiratory system. Although the earliest accounts of diphtheria date back at least 2,000 years, this disease was first associated with major epidemics in Europe during the 16th century. By the 18th century, diphtheria became a major cause of childhood illness and death in the New World. With the advent of widespread vaccination in the 1920s, the number of cases and deaths dropped dramatically. However, in areas where vaccination rates drop, diphtheria can rapidly become reestablished, as seen in the late 1990s in several former Soviet republics. Diphtheria describes the disease, the bacteria that causes it, and the development of effective treatments.
