Instructions concerning a perforation in his temple , penetrating to the bone, (and) perforating his temporal bone

Examination

If thou examinest a man having a wound in his temple, penetrating to the bone , (and) perforating his temporal bone, while his two eyes are blood-shot , he discharges blood from both his nostrils, and a little drops : if thou puttest thy fingers on the mouth of that wound (and) he shudder exceedingly ; if thou askest of him concerning his malady and he speaks not to thee ; while copious tears fall from both his eyes, so that he thrusts his hand often to his face that he may wipe both his eyes with back of his hand as a child does , and knows not that he does so .

Diagnosis

Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a wound in his temple, penetrating to the bone , (and) perforating his temporal bone, while he discharges blood from both his nostrils he suffers with stiffness in his neck, (and) he is speechless. An ailment not to be treated."

Treatment

Now when thou findest that man speechless, his relief shall be sitting ; soften his head with grease, (and) pour milk into both his ears .
