Eberth E·berth (ā'bərt), Karl Joseph. 1835-1926.
German bacteriologist and pathologist who was among the first to identify the bacillus of typhoid fever (1880).
The comma bacillus of Koch, and the typhoid fever germ of eberth, are especially destroyed in normal gastric juice.
The germ which causes this fever has generally been supposed to be the bacillus of eberth.
In 1880, Koch and eberth isolated the typhoid bacillus, and Sternberg the pneumonia bacillus.
eberth and Wadsworth86 have shown that the regeneration of corneal epithelium takes place from pre-existing epithelium.
The malevolent Deus in the sewage machina is, of course, a germ—the Bacillus typhosus of eberth.
