Medical Cases at 3 General Hospital

Medical Cases at 3 General Hospital

Many of 2 General Hospital's medical patients were transferred to 3 General Hospital so that admissions of hepatitis and pneumonia were common. The incidence of sickness in the base area was low throughout the period. It was noted that amoebic dysentery accounted for the majority of the relatively few cases of dysentery admitted. There were some cases of diphtheria and this infection was noted in some of the wounds. A high incidence of complications, especially polyneuritis, was observed.
