Abstract

was painfully swollen, and she complained of severe pain at the middle of the abdomen and was spitting a good deal of blood about every five minutes. It was owing to this spitting of blood, she was induced to go to the hospital. On looking inside the mouth, immediately after cleaning and clearing the mouth, no ulcer or injury was seen. The mucous membrane of the hard palate was simply oozing, just in the same way as perspiration pouring out from the pores of the skin. She was immediately put to bed and was advised to remain perfectly calm as far as practicable. The bitten part was cleaned, antiseptic dressings were applied, and calcium chloride, 10-gr. dose, was prescribed every three hours, and one-third gr. emetine hydrochloride was given hypodermically, and alum gargles for the mouth as often
