CASE 101.—Corporal S. Cininion, Co. K, 44th N.C.; died June 13, 1863. The patient had been sick for some time and died suddenly and unexpectedly. Post-mortem examination: The right lung was adherent to the costal pleura. The heart was very soft but contained no clot. The thoracic cavities on either side contained three ounces of uncoagulable blood, the red corpuscles of which, under the microscope, were seen to be broken down, stellated and withered, the serum of a yellowish-red color and the white corpuscles very numerous, seemingly from the absence of the red. The liver and spleen were pultaceous and disorganized. The kidneys were flabby.—Ass't Surg. H. Allen, U. S. A., Lincoln Hospital, Washington, D.C.
