CASE 51.—Corporal E. J. Innes, Co. L, 6th Mich. Cav., was admitted July 28, 1863. Diagnosis—typho-malarial fever. On admission he had diarrhœa, debility and slight fever, which was rather remittent in character at first, but became typhoid on August 7. Quinine was given and the diarrhœa was controlled by Dover's powder, lead, tannin and opium; but the prostration increased and a few rose-colored spots appeared on the abdomen. Death took place on the 10th. Post-mortem examination: Lungs congested; liver enlarged and softened; Peyer's patches inflamed, thickened and elevated but very little ulcerated.—Act. Ass't Surg. A. P.
