Haemophilus influenzae and its pathogenicity

  • K. Zinnemann
Conference paper
Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 33)


It has been stated with some measure of justification that “the majority of bacteriologists at one time or another have come under the spell of the Haemophilus group” (Rosher 1947). To a considerable extent this long continued interest is due to the puzzle set by Pfeiffer’s claim (1892) that the haemophilic Gram negative cocco-bacillus found by him in great numbers in the sputum of patients suffering from epidemic influenza and its after effects is the causative agent of that infection. His contention has been upheld by some (Jochmann 1903, Holt 1910) and more or less violently contradicted by others (Sacquépée 1901, Klieneberger 1905), and has continued as the subject of discussion for the better part of half a century.
