Overview

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1844 Excerpt: ...the succession and coincidence of the catarrhal and tubercular forms of scrofula. In the month of February, a lady, aet. 44, consulted us for herself and a daughter, aet. 11. In her own case, scrofula showed itself at the age of six years and a half by a mucous fever, followed by an abscess in the neck, which remained open for three months.

The mother, however, had an abscess in the same region in her childhood, and has had a return of the same accident at the age of forty-four. On this latter occasion the abscess has remained fistulous, and the patient has lost so much flesh and strength, that although she does not cough, we cannot but suspect her to be the subject of pulmonary tubercles. The sequel has proved the justice of our surmises: consumption developed itself most rapidly, and she sunk within the space of a few months. This catarrhal condition of the mucous membranes not uncommonly attacks scrofulous females after their confinement, those especially who persist in the attempt to nurse their infants. The increasing lassitude, however, and deficiency of milk in these women soon oblige them to resign a duty which they ought never to have undertaken.
