An enlargement, usually going on to suppurative inflammation, of a lymphatic gland, especially one in the groin or axilla.
By Stedman, Thomas Lathrop
By William R. Warner
By Nuttall, P.Austin.
In the works of Hippocrates and Galen, this word sometimes signifies the groin-Inguen; at others, the inguinal glands; and at others, again, swelling or inflammation of these parts. The moderns apply the term to an inflammatory tumour seated in the groin or axilla, and they generally distinguish-1. Simple or Sympathetic Bubo, which is independent of any virus in the economy. 2. Venereal Bubo, (F.) Bubon venerien, which is occasioned by the venereal virus. 3. Pestilential Bubo, or B. symptomatic of the Plague. The last two have by some been called malignant Bubo, (F.) Bubon malin. Primary Bubo, (F.) Bubon primitif, shows itself with the first symptoms of syphilis: the consecutive not till afterwards.
