CASE 116.—Private Evan Everly, company E, 4th Ohio volunteers; admitted from Harewood hospital, Washington, D. C., November 9, 1862. Diarrhœa. This man was convalescent from typhoid fever, but was still suffering from diarrhœa, and was much emaciated. [The register of Harewood hospital shows that he was admitted October 7th, but gives no diagnosis or disposition.] He died suddenly, at 6.15 P. M., December 10th. Autopsy: The right lung was healthy; the left lung was bound to the posterior walls of the thorax by firm adhesions. The heart was unusually small and pale; the right auricle and ventricle were almost empty, the left auricle and ventricle full of blood; the tricuspid and mitral valves were thickened and studded with vegetations. The stomach was distended by semi-fluid ingesta; its mucous coat was smooth and of a pale fawn color. The jejunum was intensely congested; the rest of the intestines was rather pale, but otherwise healthy. The liver was normal in size and structure, with the exception of a fissure an inch in length and about four lines deep, near the external border of the right lobe.
