Linales Colli,(from inter, between, and spina, the spine). Winslow calls these muscles spinales colli minores. Dr. Hunter calls them intras-pinalis, adding, that they lie between the spinal processes of the neck and loins, serving to erect the body, by bringing the spinal processes nearer to each other. The interspinals, dorsi, and lumborum are tendinous, and connect the spinal with the transverse processes.

Intertransversales Musculi

(From inter, between, and transversales, the transverse processes). They lie between the transverse processes of the cervical and lumbar vertebrae, serving to bend the neck and body to one side. Winslow calls them trans-versales minores. To the first of these muscles the name concutiens has been given.


(From inter, between, and tero, to rub). Attrita, attritio. A galling, or erosion of the cuticle, or of the skin. Children are apt to have excoriations behind their ears, in the neck, and thighs: the last often arise from neglect. The excoriated parts should be bathed frequently with warm water; and powdered chalk, or cerusse sprinkled on them through a bit of fine muslin when quite dry. Dr. Cullen considers it as a variety of erythematous inflammationintervertebrales Musculi, (from inter, between, and vertebra). They arise from the body of one vertebra laterally, and are inserted, after an oblique progress, into the back part of the other vertebra, immediately above it. They draw the vertebrae nearer to one another, and a little to one side.

(From intra, within,and sus-ci/iio, to receive). Slight degrees of introsusceptio seem, to occur frequently, and are soon restored; but even when in a considerable degree, the functions of the intestines are often not disturbed. Unless inflamed, or adhesions are formed between the external part, and that"received within," no disease seemingly follows. It occurs often so low in the rectum, that it may be reached by the finger, or the received intestine may be even protruded. Monro, Edinburgh Medical Essays. See Iliaca passio.
