    Cause of death: Scarlatina.

    Definition of Scarlatina (from www.Medicine.Net):

    "Scarlatina: Also called scarlet fever, a disease caused by infection with group A streptococcal bacteria. [...] The strep bacteria produces a toxin that causes a rash that appears 1 to 2 days after the onset of illness. The rash initially appears on the neck and chest, then spreads over the body. Typically the rash begins as small red macules which gradually become elevated. The redness fades over a few days and the patient is left with a rough 'sandpaper' feeling rash. While the rash is still red the patient may develop what are called Pastia's lines, bright red coloration of the creases under the arm and in the groin. The rash usually lasts for 3 days. As the rash fades, desquamation (peeling) may occur around the finger tips, toes, and groin area."

    Dr. Alfred E. Perkins (registered) attended from 24 Jan 1904. Duration of illness: 7 days.
