Not illustrated. 1875 Excerpt: ...1st. The accumulated pus may discharge itself and the abscess gradually dry up and disappear. 2d. The empty sac, lined by pyogenic membrane, may for an unlimited time go on pouring out pus. 3d. Small abscesses may form and discharge in one part, then others may do so in another, until the whole pelvic areolar tissue is perforated by them and by fistulous tracts connecting them. There are various outlets for the imprisoned purulent accumulation: 1st. Through the abdominal walls or saphenous openings; 2d. Through the pelvic viscera, bladder, rectum, vagina, urethra, or uterus; 3d. Through the floor of the pelvis near the anus; 4th. Through the pelvic foramina, obturator, or sacro-ischiatic; 5th.

Of the remaining 13; 6 were discharged per vaginam, 5 per anum, and 2 burst into the bladder.
