It is a frequent termination of inflammation, and may occur in almost any of the tissues. This termination is annonnced by slight chills; by remission of the pain, which, from being lancinating, becomes heavy; by a sense of weight in the part, and, when the collection of pus can be easily felt, by fluctuation. When pus is thus formed in the areolar membrane, and is collected in one or more cavities, it constitutes an abscess. If it be formed from a surface exposed to the air, it is an ulcer: and such ulcers we are in the habit of establishing artificially in certain cases of disease.
