CASE VII

The woman suffering from angina who lay sick in the house of Aristion began her complaint with indistinctness of speech. Tongue red, and grew parched.

First day. Shivered, and grew hot.

[p. 233] Third day. Rigor ; acute fever ; a reddish, hard swelling in the neck, extending to the breast on either side ; extremities cold and livid, breathing elevated ;1 drink returned through the nostrils--she could not swallow--stools and urine ceased.

Fourth day. General exacerbation.

Fifth day. Death.

1 The ancient commentators did not know the meaning of this word when applied to respiration, and a modern can only guess.
