dilatatio, from dilatare, dilatatum, (latum facere.) 'to enlarge;' Eurysmus, Aneurysmus, Dieurysmus. Augmentation of the bulk of body, occasioned by separation of some of its molecules. Caloric has the property of dilating all bodies. In Surgery, it means the accidental or preternatural augmentation of canal or opening: as in aneurisms, varices, &c., or the process of enlarging any aperture or canal. When used so as to obtain view of parts, as by the speculum, it is termed Dioptrismus.
