An acute infectious disease, indigenous to India, China, or eastern Asia, whence it is sometimes conveyed to other places in the form of destructive epidemics, due to the ingestion of the specific microorganism Spirillum cholerae asiaticae, or comma bacillus. The disease is characterized by vomiting and purging, the discharges resembling rice water; by painful cramps; and by the early occurrence of collapse with suppression of urine and a peculiar coldness of the breath.
