Lardaceous (amyloid or waxy) degeneration of the intestinal mucous membrane is met with in chronic catarrh.
That the intestines are comparatively frequently involved in lardaceous disease is shown by dead-house statistics.
Presumably, in a large proportion of these lardaceous disease of the bowel was present.
Finally, the lardaceous material may involve the whole thickness of the gut.
The sloughs and sores have either a black sanguineous appearance or they are lardaceous and intermixed with streaks of dark red.
