CASE 33.—Muscular pains as a sequel of the fever.—Private Benjamin F. Reynolds, Co. K, 86th N. Y.; age 29; admitted Feb. 18, 1862. Diagnosis—typhoid fever. On March 5 he was dejected and languid, complaining of rheumatic pains in the lower extremities; his skin was natural; pulse 90 and good: tongue moist and clean; bowels unmoved. Stiffness and pain in the legs increased until the 10th, the bowels meanwhile requiring aperients for their regulation. After this date he improved and was transferred to Annapolis, Md., on the 24th.
