. The diseases of the genital organs of domestic animals. Veterinary medicine. 542 Diseases of the Getiital Organs one instance one horn contained a desiccated hematoma and the other an apparently healthy embryo three or four inches long. The plan of the hematoma is well illustrated in Fig. 177, in which the right cornu is completely filled by the old blood clot, while the left horn remains normal and vacant. The only interpretation which I can place upon the condi- tion is that, at the termination of the last pregnancy, there occurred within a few days a voluminous hemorrhage into the gravid horn. Part of the blood escaped through the cervix and vagina to the exterior, and part remained behind to undergo desiccation and to continue, like the better known desiccated fetus, embedded in the hematoma, as an inert body which may persist for months and years. The desic- cated hematoma is a firm, doughy, black, tarry mass. When the fresh specimen is incised, it is so sticky that it is diffi- cult to push a knife through it merely because of its adhe- siveness. Parts of the mass adhere to the knife and are exceedingly difficult to wash away. It is virtually insoluble. Fig. 178—Tesselated Hematoma in Right trterine Horn.
