Morbific material is introduced into the region of the lateral cartilage by means of calk wounds and other penetrant injuries of the foot. A sub-coronary abscess which, because of lack of proper care or because of virulency of the contagium or low vitality of the subject, is quite apt to result in cartilaginous affection and its perforation by necrosis follows. Symptomatology.
Finally, of the element Fire: "Fire is the purest and noblest of all Elements, full of adhesive unctuous corrosiveness, penetrant, digestive, inwardly fixed, hot and dry, outwardly visible, and tempered by the earth....
