Case XXVIII (10).—History.
—A. F., man, aged 19, entered the hospital April 15, 1909, to the service of Dr. Ormsby. He stated on admission that ten months ago he came from Bohemia where he lived on a farm, and has since worked as a tailor in a sweat-shop on the south side of Chicago. His illness began eight weeks ago at which time he coughed much, expectorating a mucopurulent material which often was tinged with blood. Three weeks later a small painful swelling developed on the back of the right hand. This has since increased in size, and fluctuation has developed. At about the same time a tenderness in the right testicle was experienced. On other parts of the body there developed successively a number of cutaneous and subcutaneous abscesses. The patient has lost about 20 pounds in weight since the onset and is at present very weak
