Abstract

In 1951 the U. N. Forces in Korea encountered an acute infectious disease with hemorrhagic manifestations which had already been reported by the Japanese and Russians in the basin of the Amur River. This epidemic disease is only one of a number of similar but distinct hemorrhagic fevers which occur in various parts of the Soviet Union and are transmitted by an arthropod vector. This monograph, the second of a new series of publications by the Army Medical Service Graduate School, performs the useful and timely service of summarizing the Russian papers on the subject which have reached America. The literature also referred to certain toxicoses caused by food contaminated with molds and presenting clinical manifestations resembling the hemorrhagic fevers. Since information on these mycotoxicoses is lacking in English, a portion of the monograph is devoted to this subject.
