CASE 111.—Lieutenant H. T. Barrows, Co. C, 7th Maryland, was struck, May 5, 1864, by a fragment of shell, in the left lumbar region. He was treated by Surgeon C. S. Nordquist, 83d New York Volunteers, at the 2d division hospital of the Fifth Corps. Severe pain and difficult micturition, with hæmaturia, led to the belief that a laceration of the kidney had been induced. On May 12th, this officer was sent to Washington and was treated in quarters by Surgeon Antisell, U. S. V. He recovered and on June 8, 1864, was placed on Court-Martial duty.
