Four of the papers included in this study have appeared in preliminary form in Public Health Reports during 1923 or 1924. After publication of the preliminary reports a few human cases of Malta fever have been recognized in sections of this country where Malta fever has been a rare or unknown disease. The organisms isolated from the blood were sent to the Hygienic Laboratory and were identified serologically by the writer. A number of strains of Brucella melitensis have also been received from Mediterranean countries and a study of these has contributed to the general survey of the geographical distribution of the various serologic groups. The recent literature on Malta fever has increased our knowledge of the problems here considered, and the reviews have been brought up to date. WASHINGTON, D. C., May 18, 1925.
