Sorry, no etymologies found.
The condition of the kidneys in cases of strictures of long standing is known not to be a reliable one, and any incentive to dysuria or to retention, no matter how slight, is apt to lead, eventually -- and that even in very young subjects -- to that toxic condition mentioned in a former part of this chapter as one of von Jaksch's subdivisions of toxæmia, the ammoniæmia of Frerichs; this condition being the fatal ending of the case of the two-year-old child mentioned by Henoch, who died after the relief of a retention due to phimosis and calculi resulting from the phimotic occlusion.
These are the points which often do more or less mischief: wet dressings are uncomfortable and favor erections, while the effect of the weight and action of the scrotum in drawing backward on the integument should not be overlooked; in addition, it should not be overlooked that we have it in our power to produce, so to speak, an artificial phimotic action, which has the same traction on the penis-integument that the natural phimosis induces.
