Finally, to close this review of the state of the blood in inflammations of the mucous membranes, let me remark, that the increase of the fibrine has not failed to occur, either in various cases of acute cystitis, whether accompanied or not with nephritis, or in recent, painful, and intense inflammations of the utero-vaginal mucous membrane. In these different cases, which were all accompanied with fever, the fibrine oscillated between 4, 5, and 7. I may mention that one of these cases was complicated with Bright's disease of an indolent and apyrectic form, to combat which I directed a bleeding which gave 3.6 of fibrine. Three or four days afterwards an acute pain attacked the right side of the lumbar region, and fever set in. The patient was again bled, and this time his blood, suddenly changed in its composition, contained 5 of fibrine. Inflammations of the skin, as well as of the mucous membranes, bring with them an increase of the fibrine of the blood. This I have ascertained in a person who had been severely burned; while, on the other hand, there was no increase in another whose burn was slighter, and less extensive. It appears to me peculiarly interesting to determine, whether, in cases of burn, the blood becomes charged with fibrine, because in such cases, evidently, the disease begins in a solid, and the alteration of the blood can therefore only be regarded as consecutive. Further on I shall revert to this subject. The course of erysipelas, when acute and febrile, is like that of a burn, and shows an increase of fibrine represented by the numbers 6 and 7. The pustules of variola, and the exanthema of measles and scarlatina, like the follicular affection in...
