Repeated and copious venous bleedings now came on, which rapidly sank the patient ; the sloughs, whether falling off * Hennen's Military Surgery, p.
Página 392 - Secondary symptoms, (and I exclude trifling pains, eruptions, or sore throats,) that have disappeared in a few days, have seldom followed the cure of these ulcers without mercury; and they have, upon the whole, more frequently followed the raised ulcer of the prepuce than the true characteristic chancre of syphilis affecting the glans penis.
