When inflammation attacks the serous membranes, as the pleura or peritoneum, the exhalants are sometimes rendered so debilitated, that they secrete more than their natural quantity, and of a more watery consistence, which constitutes eflhsion or dropsy. This disease may also be caused by diminished absorption, or by' both increased exhalation and diminished absorption. When this action attacks glandular structure, the arteries-secrete a peculiar condensed cartilaginous structure, named schirrus, or carcinomatous sarcoma, which, when accompanied with pain, forms occult cancer. The capillaries in various parts of the body, and in various textures, secrete differently diseased substances, forming a variety of tumours, as tubercles, the common vascular or organised sarcoma, the adipose sarcoma, the pancreatic sarcoma, the mammary sarcoma, the tuberculated sarcoma, and the medullary sarcoma, or fungus haematodes; also the different kinds of encysted tumours, as the steatoma, melliceris, and the atheroma.
