Not illustrated. 1896 edition. Excerpt: ...we cannot say what share the muscles take even in general miliary tuberculosis. Undoubtedly when tubercle-bacilli are disseminated by way of the blood, tubercles sometimes develope in the muscular connective tissue, and single or multiple nodules are thus formed, which later on become foci of cheesy disintegration with indurated walls, or give rise to cold abscesses enclosed by granulating walls containing tubercles. Soft tumour-like growths, resembling sarcomata, and partly caseous, are also occasionally formed. All of these forms are somewhat rare; their frequency has, however, probably been under-rated hitherto. They occur in all or any of the muscles. and sometimes attain considerable dimensions. Syphilitic affections of the muscles lead either to indurative thickening of the muscular connective tissue, with atrophy of the muscle-fibres (syphilitic fibroid myositis), or to the formation of caseous gummata embedded in cicatricial tissue. These last occur most frequently in the muscles of the upper extremities, in those of the neck, throat, and back, and in the tongue and the external sphincter of the anus (NEUMANN). In some instances they form nodes of considerable size. In glanders large and small abscesses are formed in and between the muscles. In actinomycosis affecting the muscles soft fatty granulations, masses of indurated connective tissue, and abscesses are produced. References on Tuberculosis and Syphilis of Muscle. BIDDER: D.
