Excerpt from The Cleveland Medical Journal, Vol. 6: January, 1907
The pathologic changes which obtain in the peritoneum when infected by Koch's bacilli are varied. An infected area may present discrete or conﬂuent granulations, with abundant serous or sero-sanguineous effusion; or the granulations may be enclosed in the fibrous exudate of adhesive inﬂammation; or the site of established infection may present caseation and ulceration. The pathologic classification of this disease so generally observed, of ascitic, fibrous, and ulcerous forms, is based upon these prevailing features of the pathologic picture presented. All phases of the disease may, generally speaking, be classified under these three heads. A convenient clinical classification may be made of three classes - the acute (febrile), the subacute, and chronic (afebrile).
