Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1880 edition. Excerpt: ...walls by a flbro-uucleated adenoid-like tissue (an interstitial pneumonia); together with an accumulation of epithelial cells within the alveolar cavity. The latter are undergoing retrogressive changes X 200. (Green.) large tuberculous cavities. In those indurated and often slaty or black masses we may find very characteristic tubercle granules, which probably remain a very long time without suffering destruction. But there exists a form of tuberculosis in which the granules, however numerous they may be, are everywhere surrounded by a pigmented interstitial pneumonia. The tuberculous process is then more or less rapid in its march; but there is no very great tendency to the determination of a lobidar or lobar pneumonia. The general distribution of tuberculous lesions of the lungs is such that it is the apices which are usually first invaded; in the slow form of this disease, the apex of one lung may be attacked a long time before that of the other is involved. Thus we find, for example, in the right lung, somewhat large cavities at the summit, with interstitial pneumonia, and a pleural membrane very thick and fibrous; the middle lobe presents extensive nodules of caseous pneumonia with cavities in process of formation at their centre; and the inferior lobe may show a mass Tf lobar pneumonia in several stages, without there yet being caverns present. The pleura of the two last lobes is perhaps covered by a fibrinous exudation and may show tubercle granules. In the other lung there may be a few lobules of caseous pneumonia, one or two small cavities in the upper lobe; in the inferior lobe, congestion and some tubercle granules; tubercle granules may be very numerous upon the left pleura. This is a common type, but nothing is more variable...show more
