CASE.—Private Antoine Pascha, Co. F, 6th Vermont Volunteers, aged 21 years, received a gunshot wound in the head during the Peninsular campaign. No record of the case can be found until September 26th, 1862, when the patient was admitted to Carver Hospital at Washington. On January 8th, 1863, he was sent to Baxter Hospital, Burlington, Vermont, and on April 7th to Fort Wood, New York Harbor. He had been treated for a wound received in another engagement, and had nearly recovered on May 6th, 1863, when an attack of encephalitis supervened, causing death on May 8th, 1863. The autopsy revealed a bullet in the brain, behind the frontal bone, near which a small abscess had formed. Surgeon John Campbell, U. S. A., reported the case.
