These conditions of the muscular fibres can at 
once be seen to be abnormal, but still they 
are altogether of an ambiguous character, 
& therefore, so far, I have omitted the considera-
tion of them only from a wish to keep that 
which is certain, distinct from that which 
is only probable.
Besides the cells of molecules 
already described as accumulated in suf=
ficient quantity to present the undoubted 
form of Cysticercus above mentioned, 
(See Plate 2, fig: 1.) numerous minute 
irregularly shapen particles are found in 
the same specimens of diseased muscle.
These occur either singly or grouped 
together in clusters of different shapes & 
sizes. Some lie immediately beneath 
the sarcolemma, others are deeply seated 
in the substance of the primary fasciculi. 
See Plate 2. fig 9. 
They exist both in fasciculi containing 
imperfect entozoa, & in those in which 
entozoa are not sufficiently formed to 
have a decided character. 
These particles do not resemble 
in the least the scattered nuclei normally 
existing in muscular fibres nor are they 
like the spherules of oil into which these 
fibres are sometimes converted. Occasionally 
however there is a state of fatty degeneration 
of some of the muscular fibres, co-existing 
with this disease. This state is known by 
the
