Des inflammations spéciales du tissu muqueux et en particulier de la diphthérite, ou inflammation pelliculaire.

Paris: Crevot, 1826.

Bretonneau showed that croup, malignant angina, and “scorbutic gangrene of the gums” were all the same disease, for which he suggested the term dipntheritis, later substituting “dipnthérite”. He performed (pp. 300-38) tracheotomy for croup. English translation in New Sydenham Society’s Memoirs on diphtheria, London, 1859.
