Abstract:

Edema and hyperemia were chosen as the two main sigmoidoscopical findings of the sigmoid and rectum on patients with bacillary dysentry. According to the combination of these two findings, 1293 cases with bacillary dysentery were classified into four groups. The corrleation of the sigmoidoscopical findings with the clinical symptoms was investigated on 244 patients with bacillary dysentery. An attitude of goblet cells was chosen as an indicator of the stage and severity of the disease. Its correlation with the stage of illness and other important histological findings was mentioned. The process of the disease was analyzed in the clinical standpoint and at the same time it was considered in reference with the correlation of the macroscopical and histological findings of the intestinal mucous membrane to the clinical signs. The pathogenesis of bacillary dysentery was discussed from the results of the above-mentioned observations and their relationship. Author
