The existence of the hard fibrous tube of the fistula is not even felt in the soft tissues near the anus by palpitation. In order to convince himself about the cure, the patient tried all things, which used to irritate his fistula, namely, he tried twice, at different times, walking a long distance of 5 to 6 miles, which invariably used to make the fistula burst; but without any relapse.
It got the highest umber of marks for the symptom “worse by bathing”, and the patient had no typical symptoms of Bryonia, e.g., thirst for large quantity of water and better by rest. She had been x-rayed in the hospital in Poona and I dont know what had been diagnosed there. I asked for the x-ray diagnosis and that of the attending physician from her son but I could not get any information. Trouble in the kidney was excluded by urine examination.
