Caption: Osteomyelitis after gunshot wound. 19th-century artwork of a case of osteomyelitis, the inflammation and infection of bone marrow. The cause here was a gunshot wound and fracture of the femur. The patient, a David Suffern (46 years old), was admitted to Bellevue Hospital, New York, on 28 September 1865, but died on 4 January 1866 of infections from the wound. This watercolour, drawn by R. Kohler, was published as Case X in volume I of 'Surgical Memoirs of the War of the Rebellion' (1870).
