The degree of danger, generally is in pro = portion the the extent of the inflammation; when this has extended far into the bronchial tubes, it adds of course very much to the danger of the case. When the fever and croupy symptoms, which characterizes the disease come on suddenly the danger, is generally much great, then where it is gradually developed. The shriller, and more sonorous the cough the greater is the danger, to be apprehended. Although we have certain symptoms to guide us, in forming our prognosis; yet we cannot always form a true one; for in some cases all the symptoms apparently give way, and promise a speedy convalescence; where, on a sudden a violent exacerbation super = venes, and destroys the patient in a short time.
