necessary in order to separate the true pleura from 
the morbid structure by which it is enveloped, to dissect 
away the false membrane (and it will be found quite

When it occurs that such false membranes are 
formed, not only is the sub-jacent cellular tissue 
thickened and hypertrophied, but the parenchymatic 
structure itself also (forming the leaflets or pulmonary 
tissue) in the immediate locality is at the same time 
toughened and made to resemble parchment. 
This toughened and hypertrophied structure which 
occupies the situation which in a state of health 
belongs to the air-cells, can be injected with consi=

will be found that this altered structure will admit of 
only a very sparing and insufficient quantity of the 
fluid sent into the Pulmonary artery, passing into 
its capillaries, although every other part of the lungs
