The first one, after an earthquake, with numerous severe ataxo-adynamic manifestations and the second, more attenuated with few severe cases. Remembers of treatments utilized at XIX Century for the disease and the beginning of sulphamides prescription at the thirty decade are presented.

Finally, we comment the severe presentation of soft tissues streptococcal diseases that appeared in the end of XX Century.
