Case Study
The article presents a case study involving a 36-year-old French man who was admitted to the hospital on November 22, 1921 complaining of severe occipital and orbital headache and back pain. The patient had diminished reflexes and showed retinal hemorrhages in the eyes. He was diagnosed with acute hemorrhagic meningitis due to streptococcus viridans. Treatment and gradual improvement of the patient's condition are detailed. The original condition was thought to be caused by endarteritis.
