Abstract : The report serves to illustrate the very special clinical behavior of the Newcastle virus: it is unilateral, and presents the symptoms of Parinaud's syndrome; there is palperbral swelling and pre-auricular adenopathy, frequent chemosis particularly marked on the inner surface of the semi-lunar fold, frequent subconjunctival hermorrhage, benignity, and normal absence of any corneal symptoms. This kind of conjunctivitis is not very typical of the general run of acute conjunctival infections. Its appearance in rural areas where veterinarians are already alerted to the presence of a deadly epidemic in the poultry-yards should make its etiology immediately suspect. (Author)
