The Signs and Causes of Tenesmus

  • François Du Port


Tenesmus is marked by a sharp pain at the anus, and urgency to defecate which yields only a little mucus at the orifice, stained with flecks of blood. The cause of this ill is pungent bile, and false phlegm, but more so the adherent sticky phlegm that is passed only with the severest pain.
