CASE 188.—Private John Walford, Co. F, 2d U. S. Colored troops, was admitted Jan. 17, 1866, in a moribund condition; tongue parched; teeth and lips covered with sordes. Stimulants were freely used, but he died next day. There is no detailed record of the autopsy, but the whole intestinal canal was received at the Museum. The ileum showed hypertrophied villi and progressive thickening and ulceration of the solitary follicles and Peyer's patches; many solitary glands in the colon were enlarged to the size of peas and ulcerated on their summits.
