Excerpt from Southern Medical and Surgical Journal, 1852, Vol. 8
Much is to be anticipated from the further prosecution of these investigations, and already it is probable that they justify us in advancing one step in the pathology of the disease at the head of this article, and if the deductions are not erroneous, will lead to a fuller understanding of phlebitis in all its forms.
The conclusions to which they would lead are, that phlegm asia dolens or phlebitis is caused by the introduction of diseased matter, usually pus, into the blood - that inﬂammation of a vein is not an essential part ofthe primary affection, which precedes constitutional symptoms, even when morbid matter has found its way into the circulation through a vein, and that when the veins are inﬂamed, it is an effect, and not the cause of the recep tion of diseased or foreign matter into them.
