SUNDAY, MAY 31,1964, UH CUto AmMtn. p«« Youngsters Hit By Df, Theodore ft. Van Delicti (Copyright 1964: By Tiie Chicago Tribune) A reader asks, "What can you leu me about herpangina?" I am surprised we have not more letters on this condition, which is one of the most frequent summer Illnesses of early childhood. The explanation may be that this mild disease often is mistaken for a slight cold or for nonparalytic polio. We have known about herb-angina since 1920, but no one seemed interested until (he causitive virus was isolated 30 years later. The infection is caused by a certain group A Coxsackie virus. The Coxsackie family has been recognized since 1947 but the herpangina micro-organisms were not discovered until 1950. Since that time they have been found in 10 per cent of children attending selected clinics during July, August, and September. Herpangina develops suddenly with the temperature going up to 105 degrees F. Fever lasts one to four days. Vomiting and convulsions may occur in young children; older youngsters often compain of headache and sore throat and refuse to eat. Many also have pain and tenderness in the neck. In the past, a diagnosis of nonparalytic polio frequently was made in children with neck stiffness. There is a good possibility that many had her- pangina. The two disorders appear at the same time of the year and a sore throat often precedes polio. ' Minute blisters form on the 1 soft palate and tonsilar pillar' during the first day of the ill-: ness. They rupture and are sue- j ceeded by small ulcers with a red halo. These lesions are the cold sores associated with herpes, which explains why the disease is called herpangina. (Angina refers to sore throat). The causative viruses are not. exactly similar but belong to the same family. Treatment of herpangina is not necessary, except for a few aspirins. Complete recovery is the rule. Dr. Van Dellen will answer questions on medical topics if stamped, self-addressed envelope accompanies request. Three MSC | Nurses To < Visit N.J. Three McNeese State College ! student nurses will leave June I 9 to attend the National Student! Nurses convention in Atlantic' City, N.J.

Lake Charles, state president; j Opal Peshoff of Sulphur, state i recoring secretary; and Patty I Martin of Lake Charles, state j publicity chairman. Purpose of the convention is i to bring unity and a closer un- derstandirfKf mong student nurses throughout the nation, Miss White says. Besides the three McNeese students, Louisiana will send 45 other delegates from colleges and universities throughout, the state to the convention. Before* returning home, the student nurses will tour the New York World's Fair. ULCERATED BLADDER •J. B. writes: I have been treating for ulcer of the bladder [or five years. Is there any hope of cure? Hcply Hunncr'g ulcer of the bladder is a stubborn condition that is difficult to heal. Dilating the bladder, the use of antibiotics, and local treatment of the ulcer may help. The large intestine should be X-rayed because an infection diyerticulum may be irritating this part of the bladder. EAT LESS Mrs. J. A. writes: Can an overweight nursing mother reduce without harming the baby? Reply Yes. Eat the same foods, but in smaller amounts. SWOLLEN TONGUE M. 0. writes: What would cause sudden swelling of the tongue and the saliva glands? This has happened twice in two months. Hcply Allergy, when the swelling is temporary.
