Excerpt from The London Medical Gazette, Vol. 16: Being a Weekly Journal of Medicine and the Collateral Sciences; Vol. II. For the Session 1834-35 Symptoms. - Independently of shivering and other general symptoms of inflamma tory fever, there is local pain in the hypo gastric region, referred round to the loins and along the inner part of the thighs, much increased on the pressure of the hand, as well as on each return of the after-pain. The uterus is felt larger and harder than natural, as in more simple con gestion; the lochial discharge is suppressed, or flows sparingly - is of a dark dirty co lour, and possesses a foetid odour; the milk is diminished in quantity; the urine and most other secretions are also defee tive. There is generally a frequent desire to evacuate the bladder, and its contents are voided with much pain; and if an ex amination be made by the vagina, the os uteri will be found hot and exquisitely tender. Should the disease spread to the peritoneum, the pain will become more general, accompanied by the other signs of inflammation of that membrane, hereafter to be enumerated; and should an abscess form in the uterine structure, or gangrene occur, excessive prostration of strength will be observed; the countenance will be come rapidly pale, and expressive of great anxiety the pulse will be rapid and weak; the respiration hurried, laboured.
