Amphemeri Nos Amphemerina

It is the continued fever of Linnaeus and Vogel, (from . Amphemeri Nos Amphemerina 469 a Greek preposition, signifying a re-volution, and a day,) a quotidian intermittent. See Quotidiana febris.

It is by some considered a remittent fever, in contradistinction to the febris quotidiana, which is an intermittent, and is defined a kind of remittent fever, whose paroxysms return every day of a similar nature, though it is rarely observed to be regular. Sauvages enumerates no less than twenty-four species. - See Sauvages, vol. ii. p. 322.


(From Amphiarthrosis 471 , both, and

Amphiarthrosis 473 an articulation). A mixed sort of articulation, partaking of the diarthrosis and the synarthrosis; it resembles the first in being moveable, and the latter in its connection. The species which compose it have not a particular cartilage belonging to each of them, as in the diarthrosis, but they are both united to a common cartilage, which, being more or less pliable, allows them certain degrees of flexibility, though they cannot slide upon each other; such is the connection of the first rib with the sternum, and of the bodies of the vertebrae with each other. See Ar-ticulatio.


(From Amphiblestroides 476 , a net, and forma). The retina, or net-like coat of the eye; also the same as Retiformis, which see; and Verricularis tunica.


(From Amphibranchia 478 , about, and

Amphibranchia 480 the fauces). The fauces or parts about the tonsils.


(From Amphicaustis 481 , about, and a ditch). A sort of wild barley; so called because it grows about ditches. See also Pudendum muli-ebre.


Or Amphidaeum, (from Amphideon 483 on both sides, and to divide). The mouth of the womb, which opens both ways. See Os internum.


See Ambidexter.


(From Amphidiarthrosis 485 both, and articulated). So Winslow calls the articulation of the lower jaw, which is partly by a ginglymus. and partly by an arthrodia.

Amphimerina Hungarica

(From Amphimerina Hungarica 487 about, and a day,) called also morbus Hungaricus; cephalonosa; febris Hungarica, castrensis, and carceris; languor panonicus: is said to be a kind of tertian remittent fever. Sauvages calls it asthenia pa-nonica, and doubts whether or no it differs from typhus. It affects chiefly soldiers in camp; and is sometimes epidemic, gradually destroying the functions of the machine, and in the end proving fatal.
