Varioloid, Hornpock; (3) Varicella, Syn. Chicken-pox. These diseases are all regarded by Hebra as forms of smallpox; and Neumann, who follows him, says: "We assume three forms of variola, each according to the intensity of the process--1. Variola vera, duration thirty-one days. 2. Varioloid, duration twenty-one days. 3. Varicella,1 duration fourteen days. The morbid process is the same in all the three forms. The eruptions, as well in their anatomical structure as in their appearance, are entirely identical, and the intensity of the disease alone varies. In variola vera there are more efflorescences on the skin than in varioloid, and more in the latter than in varicella. Therefore, the duration of the morbid process, which stands in exact relation to the number of efflorescences and the intensity of the phenomena, serves as the peculiar characteristic of the different forms of variola." Now, the two points on which particular stress is laid in the above statement are: (1) that the duration of the morbid process, and (2) that the intensity of the disease are in proportion to the number of 1 It may be said that Hebra uses the term varicella in an unusual sense; if so he omits the consideration of our varicella altogether. efflorescences, and that this number is less in varicella than in varioloid.
