Abstract

Drs. Herrick and Janeway1 report the first case of trichinosis in which the embryo of the parasite was found in the blood. We wish to record here another, which, so far as we know, will be the second case. The history is as follows:

Patient.  —C. S., Case No. 857, male medical ward, South Side Hospital, admitted Dec. 24, 1909, with the diagnosis of acute nephritis, which was made by the resident on the ambulance service, being based mostly on the facial edema, which involved the eyelids very markedly. After the patient was in the ward for several days, it was found that, so far as could be estimated by the urinalysis, the kidney condition alone did not seem to be severe enough to account for the marked facial edema, especially as it persisted after the albumin and casts had disappeared from the urine by the third day.
