Cell Wall Deficient Forms:
by Lida H. Mattman
Years ago some folks doubted the ability of this brilliant researcher, and could not accept she was able to grow Lyme spirochetes from the walnut-like cyst forms. They had some trouble replicating her abilities. Just read this book and it is very clear that this is an intellectual Olympian and it is no surprise they could not promptly do and understand what she can do.
And by the way, in the last few months, researchers have finally learned how to culture Lyme from blood. They just need a very large amount to be able to do it.
It is common in medicine to see either an incorrect diagnosis or an "idiopathic" diagnosis. This word "idiopathic" means "we have no idea." This banner word is used for many infectious diseases. So many infection causes are a complete mystery. For many idiopathic diseases, the causes become clear when certain techniques are applied to the patient's blood or other tissues. Dr. Mattman opens many eyes and moves many patients from the idiopathic realm to the known realm with this text.
Perhaps in about twenty years, folks will catch up with Dr. Mattman.

Mattman (immunology, Nelson Medical Research Institute, Warren, MI) explores pleomorphic forms of bacteria and fungi, which are inconvenient to deal with but allow a much more precise identification of a pathogen and diagnosis of disease. She provides information to help researchers determine the organisms that should be added to the childhood vaccine, especially for boys; the bacterium found in its pleomorphic state in direct smears of synovial fluid of rheumatoid arthritis cases; the chronic disease for which an acid-fast organism is routinely found in smears of 72-h blood cultures in any routine medium; the bacterium that has a life cycle in the human erythrocyte as complex as that of Plasmodium malaria; the common pathogen of which the L form can permanently damage mammalian myocardium; and other microbes.

Numerous infectious diseases are described as idiopathic, meaning that "the cause is a complete mystery." For many idiopathic diseases, the causes become clear when certain techniques are applied to the patient's blood or other tissues. Cell Wall Deficient Forms: Stealth Pathogens, Third Edition describes these techniques. In the case of tuberculosis, a disease that has recently regained importance because the strains have acquired antibiotic resistance, the book describes a method that is widely used abroad. This method typically renders the diagnosis within 72 hours. The book examines a plethora of issues and provides answers to the following questions:
What organism should be added to the childhood vaccine, especially for boys?
What bacteria in its pleomorphic state is found in direct smears of synovial fluid of rheumatoid arthritis cases?
In which chronic diseases (presently considered as being of unknown origin) is an acid-fast organism routinely found in smears of 72-hour blood cultures?
Which "bacterium" has a life cycle in the human erythrocyte as complex as that of Plasmodium malaria?
Which common pathogen's L Form can permanently damage mammal myocardium?
Cell Wall Deficient Forms: Stealth Pathogens, Third Edition discloses significant aspects of microbiology, aspects that are not taught, and which go unrecognized in the clinical laboratory.
