Excerpt from Manual Pathology and Practice, Being the Outline of the Course of Lectures Delivered The science of Pathology of necessity presupposes and is founded upon an acquaintance with the doctrines of Physiology. As Physiology is the history of the several organs of the animal body and their functions, in a natural and healthy state; so Pathology consists in a knowledge of the morbid conditions of the organs and their functions. Disease has been variously defined; it always implies some irregularity or aberration in the performance of one or more of the functions of the body. This irregularity of action may be owing to obvious alterations in the structure of some parts of the body, or it may occur without our being able to detect any change in the structure of any part. Hence the distinction of diseases into Functional and Organic - and hence the importance of a close inspection of the condition of the parts of bodies dead from disease - a description of which constitutes the useful and interesting department of morbid anatomy. Disease may be local or general. It is local when the cause producing it acts with special force upon some single part or organ, while yet no participation in the morbid consequences is extended to other parts. It is general when the primary local affection has been communicated or extended throughout the system. Each of these may produce the other. It is plausibly argued that all diseases are primarily local, and afterwards radiated or rendered universal by nervous sympathies, and by vitiation of the fluids of the body. General disease may also produce local affections, as in hepatic and splenic inflammation from the concussions of fever, and in gout and scrofula. Causes of disease divided in the books into Remote and Proximate. I prefer to use the terms Efficient and Constituent. The proximate cause has been absurdly enough regarded as the disease itself.
