3100. Section of a spleen, showing an extensive and rather firm ejicephaloid deposit.
From a woman, set. thirty-three years, and who reported herself as having been sick only five weeks. The kidneys, stomach, liver, and gall-bladder were cancerous ; and the last were crowded with calculi. 1867. Dr. G. Ellis.
