Description

Excerpt from The Medico-Chirurgical Review, and Journal of Practical Medicine, Vol. 36: 1st of October, 1841, to 31st of March, 1842 Case 4.-c. Gibson, aged 4, admitted into St. George's Hospital, October 30, 1839, with the left nostril distended with a malignant tumor. Sir B. Brodie removed this, destroying the surface to which it was attach ed by means of the chloride of zinc. The child left the hospital at the end of January, there appearing to be only some dead bone to exfoliate. On Feb. 19, however, he was re-admitted, looking pale and anxious, and scarcely able to move any of his limbs, in which much pain was felt. The abdomen was large and tender, there was a good deal of fever, and the nostril was full of tenacious mucus, with some coagulated blood. After his admission, the paraplegia increased, as to the muscular power, but the sensibility was not lessened, nor was there any sloughing of the lower part of the body; and somewhat later there was incontinence of urine and faces.
