Agglutination tests of 509 blood samples from healthy persons and from patients suffering from other illnesses for the presence of Past. pseudotuberculosis antibodies led in only nine cases to finding low titres, the specificity of which in the majority of cases could be established by absorption tests. The incidence of such infection can accordingly be characterized as very low. As an interesting side result, one sure case of Past. pseudotuberculosis illness was found, caused by Type V, and also one probable Past. pseudotuberculosis infection which clinically ran a septicemic-typhous course.
