section 7


Still greater is the doubt as to whether an imposthume can be in the heart, for Avicenna says the heart does not suffer imposthume, and Hali says a man dies before the pain is confirmed in the heart. And I say with regard to that, that every imposthume is fatal in the substance of the heart, and therefore it does not suffer it to be stabilized therein, that is its stasis, for it is with regard to its stabilizing he says stasis, or the end of its increasing, because a man dies before he reaches the ‘static’ period.358
