A bone may be injured in a different part of the head from that on
which the person has received the wound, and the bone has been laid
bare. This is the fifth mode. And for this misfortune, when it occurs,
there is no remedy; for when this mischief takes place, there is no
means of ascertaining by any examination whether or not it has occurred,
or on what part of the head.
