The undulation of a fluid collected in any natural or artificial cavity, which is felt by pressure or by percussion, properly practised -peripheric fluctuation. In ascites, the fluctuation is felt by one of the hands being applied to one side of the abdomen whilst the other side is struck with the other hand. In abscesses, fluctuation is perceived by pressing on the tumour, with one or two fingers alternately, on opposite points.
