CASE 450.—Sergeant S. L. Lynn, 7th New Jersey, received a shot perforation of the chest and abdomen, November 6, 1864. First treated at the Second Corps hospital; he was transferred to Armory Square, at Washington, where Acting Assistant Surgeon T. H. Stewart states that the ball, entering the right seventh intercostal space anteriorly, passed backward and downward through the lung, diaphragm, liver, and kidney, "as was indicated by the difficult breathing, profuse discharge of bilious matter, and bloody urine," and emerged to the right of the second lumbar vertebra. The surface was icteroid. Death, December 15, 1864.
