GERMAN EDITION of the 1826 edition. "Bretonneau showed that croup, malignant angina, and ‘scorbutic gangrene of the gums’ were all the same disease, for which he suggested the term ‘diphtheritis’, later substituting ‘diphthérite’. He performed tracheotomy for croup." Garrison and Morton. "Pierre Bretonneau, of Tours, wrote important monographs on the contagion of ‘dothienenteritis’ or typhoid fever (1819-29), on diphtheria (1826), giving the disease its present name; and, on July 1, 1825, performed the first successful tracheotomy in croup.... His correspondence with his pupils, Velpeau and Trousseau, is the most interesting collection of medical letters since Guy Patin." Garrison, History of medicine, p. 413.
