Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ...cases are always attended by severe local pains and a general and severe constitutional condition. The patient looks anxious and haggard, has no appetite, emaciates rapidly, and in unfavorable instances dies. The course of the affection is sometimes rather slow, and in others very rapid. In some cases a diphtheritic membrane forms over the sore, while the destructive action goes on beneath. The course of chancroidal phagedena presents many features which point to a further bacterial infection complicating the chancroidal ulceration. Chancroidal Lymphangitis.--Inflammation of the lymphatics is a not very frequent complication of the chancroid. It is sometimes seen as heat, redness, pain, and a cord-like condition of these vessels on either side of the penis, corresponding to the chancre. This condition may end in inflammation of the inguinal ganglia and its own subsidence, or it may go on to the formation of chancroids along the sides of the penis, and even at its root, low down on the pubes, as seen in Fig. 4, Plate II. In some cases, besides chancroidal ulcers along the lymphatics, there is a similar form of bubo. Chancroids Of The Meatus.--These chancroids are not very common, and when present involve one or both sides of the orifice. They may extend downward and involve the whole fossa navicularis. I have never seen a true case of chancroid in which the lesion was seated beyond the navicular portion of the urethra, and, although many cases have been reported, there is a strong probability that in some an error of diagnosis was made. Chancroids of the vagina are very rare, except in old syphilitic subjects. Chancroids of the os uteri are also exceedingly rare, and when present resemble those seen in the vulva.
