One of the authors, Col.

Draginja’s final graduation paper was "Propaedeutic and Therapeutic in Spotted Fever." Draga died from typhus in Valjevo in 1915, when she was 29, Janko Babic from sadness for Draginja, and a famous Ehrlich in Berlin from heart failure. Propaedeutic has been as a link and as destiny.
