CASE.—Corporal Jacob Brandt, Co. D, 142d Pennsylvania Volunteers, aged 31 years, was wounded at the Wilderness, May 6th, 1864, by a fragment of shell, which entered at the right side of the face, on a level with the lower margin of the inferior maxilla, and one inch in front of the condyle, passed backward and downward, and emerged between the scapula over the spinal column. He was, on May 11th, admitted to Armory Square Hospital, Washington. Stimulants were administered, and generous diet ordered. The patient had frequent chills, and all the symptoms of pyæmia, and was very much exhausted. Secondary hæmorrhage, which was slight, occurred on June 3d, from an ulceration of the external jugular vein. He died on June 3d, 1864. The case is reported by Surgeon D. W. Bliss, U. S. V.
