Abstract:

The clinical picture of human pseudotuberculosis is non- characteristic so that a reliable differential diagnosis from other diseases with similar symptoms is possible only by bacteriological and serological tests. Clinical symptoms may correspond to a septic-typhoid affection, an acute or subacute appendicitis and, in some cases, a subacute or chronic enteritis. The symptomatology of an individual case is frequently difficult or impossible to classify under even these syndromes.
