In Larisa a bald man suddenly experienced pain in the right thigh. No remedy did any good.

First day. Acute fever of the ardent type ; the patient was quiet, but the pains persisted.

Second day. The pains in the thigh subsided, but the fever grew worse ; the patient was rather uncomfortable and did not sleep ; extremities cold ; copious and unfavourable urine was passed.

Third day. The pain in the thigh ceased, but there was derangement of the intellect, with distress1 and much tossing.

Fourth day. Death about mid-day.

1 Probably trouble in the bowels.
