The article focuses on research into spirochaetes and fusiform bacilli and their appearance in alveolar abscesses. It states that specimens from twenty chronic alveolar abscesses that were gathered under controlled conditions revealed the presence of streptococci and fusiform bacilli. It mentions that pus cells were commonly found, and sixteen of the abscesses also contained spirochaetes. It speculates that apical infections may be a result of the combined activities of the three organisms.
