Rarer infectious diseases.


An infectious
disease can be considered rare simply because the physician seldom thinks of that diagnosis. This paper describes the clinical features of chancroid, brain abscess, chlamydial pneumonia in infancy, mucocutaneous lymph node system, bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, and
Lyme arthritis, in an attempt to widen the physician’s diagnostic consideration.
