section 45


Item hard imposthumes that are on the liver436 can be cured at the beginning of the matter, with great difficulty;


thereafter it is not possible, for it turns to dropsy within fifteen days; and then the hardness is not apparent to the touch, and that is the dropsy that cannot be cured. Note, the imposthume that is at the back437 of the liver is usually cleared up by three things, by urine, by sweat, and by nose-bleeding; and an imposthume inside the liver is most438 times terminated by flux, by sweat, or by vomiting.
