Streptococci induce Rheumatism and Thyroiditis
the connections between acute respiratory infections,
acute rheumatic fever and hyperthyreoidism were first described by v.
Basedow, 28. March 1840.
The connections between acute respiratory infections,
acute rheumatic fever and diabetes mellitus were first
described by Ebstein, 1876.
And Veil again focussed these lines of evidence to
the central point: Induction by streptococcal infection.
We only have to look into the old books to find the new things.
