The diazo reaction represents an indirect symptom which, similar to splenic tumor and fever, is of diagnostic value not in itself but only in consideration of the other symptoms. The occurrence of the reaction is based on the fact that the substances created by the decomposition of the parenchyma of the body andor of pus, are resorbed and are consequently eliminated through the kidneys. The reaction is of value for diagnosis and prognosis specifically in four illnesses typhoid fever, pulmonary tuberculosis, puerperal affections and hidden suppuration, e.g. abscess of the liver.
