A disease which, with a certain degree of severity, has a rapid progress, and short duration, is said to be "acute."-Oxynose'ma, Oxyn'osos, Oxynu'sos. Diseases were formerly subdivided into Morbi acutis'simi, very acute, or those which last only three or four days: M. subacutis'simi, which continue seven days: and M. subacu'ti, or those which last from twenty to forty days. The antithesis to acute is chronic. Acute, when applied to pain, sound, cries, &c., means sharp.
