Puerperal Fever.
One case was notified, and the case proved fatal. It is
doubtful as to whether this case should be considered under this
heading, the history of the case being that the mother had, a
month previously, nursed another child suffering from Scarlet
Fever, and had been ailing subsequently. At the confinement
and afterwards there were no symptoms of any pelvic complications.
The infant developed Scarlet Fever.
