In an attempt to gain information about the “incubation period” of subacute bacterial endocarditis, the literature was searched for case reports stating a specific interval between an event likely to cause bacteremia and the onset of symptoms.

Mary Starkebaum et al.

The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine 50 (1), 1977

In 76 cases of streptococcal endocarditis for which this information was given, the median “incubation period” was one week.

Mary Starkebaum et al.

The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine 50 (1), 1977

Although there may be a bias toward reporting short incubation periods, it is concluded that the incubation period of subacute bacterial endocarditis is often shorter than is generally realized, and that procedures carried out more than two weeks before onset of symptoms are less likely to be causally related.

Mary Starkebaum et al.

The Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine 50 (1), 1977

The incubation period of infectious diseases, the time from infection with a microorganism to onset of disease, is directly relevant to prevention and control.

Hiroshi Nishiura

Emerging Themes in Epidemiology 4 (7), 11 May 2007

Since explicit models of the incubation period enhance our understanding of the spread of disease, previous classic studies were revisited, focusing on the modeling methods employed and paying particular attention to relatively unknown historical efforts.
