Congestion of the Liver.
This is not strictly a disease, but the result of gastrointestinal disorders. There is an enlarged, congested liver, with a sense of fullness and weight in the right side under the ribs.
The application of heat, and even leeches, to the side, and the administration of saline laxatives, afford relief. The diet must be light and farinaceous.
