section 3


Item the urine in this species, is thin and sometimes high-coloured, but less often high here, than in the species called ascites; for Galen says this form is produced by heat, not by great heat, nor great cold, but by medium heat. Usually there is more heat in the liver, and the urine is thicker in ascites, because of the humours present therein. Item the pulse is rapid and hard, on account of flatulence.
