ABSTRACT

Abscess of the spleen is rare, and when a case falls into our hands and is operated on successfully, it is worthy of record.

About the middle of May, 1901, I was called to see Mr. A., and obtained the following history:

History.—American, age 74 years, weight 211 lbs. Family history: Mother and one sister died of consumption. Father died of some brain trouble. Previous history: Has had two severe falls, the last one two years ago, from which he never fully recovered. Jan. 10, 1901, was seized with a severe attack of influenza, which completely prostrated him. At the end of three weeks the temperature and pulse were normal. He has never lived in a malarial district and has never suffered from typhoid or malarial fever. Since the beginning of his sickness he has constantly lost in weight.

Present Illness.—Patient in bed, anemic, covered with a cold
