I did not, however, urge operation, because many writers on the subject advise that the removal of the eye should not be done during an acute panophthalmitis, because of the danger of meningitis, and because the danger of sympathetic ophthalmia following such inflammation is very slight. This operation was not of my own selection, but was probably the least dangerous of any that could be done, and we did not have the patient's permission before anesthesia to do more than a simple exploration.
Some cows which are tolerable milkers are yet very bad cows for the butcher. Cur in childhood, and that it is the more probable injury in these cases in which diagnosis is difficult: I propose, therefore, to present the question of fracture versus separation of the epiphysis, and to show several patients in whom the history and present appearances seem to bear out this conclusion, in the hope that members of the section may confirm the diagnosis, or point out the errors in reasoning by which it was made.
One form of these spasmodic movements is manifested by the patient's picking or fumbling the bed-clothes; another by obstinate hiccough. The ground taken by Westphal at first, that it did so in all cases, he found to be incorrect, and finally modified his statements so as to admit that in some cases the reflex was even exaggerated in the early stage of the disease. It is inflammable and burns with a pale blueij flame Like alcohol, ether, and wood-spirit, it decomposes chromic acid,,; producing green oxide of chromium.
The same applies to those with renal For those interested in the subject, it may be well to recall that Fiirbringer places the amount of oxalic acid passed in twenty-four hours at about one-third of a grain.
