section 36


Item if the urine be low417 in colour, according to Egidius, and thin in substance, and much radiance in it like a sunbeam, with little bodies like ashes underneath; that is a sign of imposthume or stoppage of the spleen. Item if the urine be black in colour like the hue inopus, at the beginning of the disease, that is a sign that death will result418 therefrom; at other times it typifies an imposthume on the kidneys, if it be scant.
