|Introduced the name Bacillus paratyphosus (later Salmonella paratyphi).
|He gave it to a germ that looked like the typhoid germ (S. typhi) and caused a disease similar to typhoid -- but which was not agglutinated by typhoid antiserum. He was not the first to encounter these infections, which were rendered atypical by the use of serology to diagnose typhoid, and which therefore caused confusion until the agent was recognized as a separate species. Not in Garrison 4th. or Lechevalier.
