oa South African Medical Journal - The Manzullo Immediate Tellurite test in diphtheria*
Manzullo's direct tellurite test was carried out on 62 consecutive unselected cases of pharyngeal exudate. 84.3 per cent. of diphtheria cases gave positive results. 36.6 per cent. of non-diphtheritic cases also gave positive results. The test has not been found to be of any value in the diagnosis of diphtheria in the Johannesburg area.
