Thomas W. Hollen. Hospital Number 20.611. Thomas W. Hollen, private Co. H. 205 Pa. Vols., age 28, admitted April 5th 1865, to Harewood U.S.A. General Hospital from City Point, Va., with gun shot wound through right wrist joint, also upper third right arm, flesh. Wounded at Petersburg, April 2, 1865. When admitted wrist and hand were very much swollen and inflamed, but by the application of cold to the parts all inflammation had ceased. April 20th, the wrist and hand became again swollen and very much inflamed, and all remedies failed to subdue it, sinuses having formed on the dorsal surface of hand and wrist. The sinuses were relieved of pus, and fore arm enveloped in bran; sinuses continued to form, having involved the cellular tissue of elbow joint. April 28th, by bandaging from shoulder to elbow joint, the inflammation was subdued. Very little discharge from wound at present time (May 1st.) Gangrene attacked the hand, but soon disappeared.
