Tub-bowl

 

This is name given to two different conditions-disease of the lymphatic glands of the abdomen, and tubercle of the covering membrane of the intestine. The former is the disease more commonly met with in infants and children; the latter is more common in adult life. The symptoms of the former are great wasting of the limbs and trunk muscles, with increase in the size of the abdomen. With this there may be chronic diarrhoea, or obstinate constipation. The symptoms of the latter are the usual symptoms of inflammation of the bowels (see BOWELS, INFLAMMATION OF), but with great wasting.

The treatment of these conditions can only be directed by a medical man. The prevention is chiefly a question of proper nourishment and care of the general health. See previous article; also BATH, CLOTHING, and DIET.
