"A day by day case report of the lengthy but successful drainage of a hydrosarcocele [swollen testes]...it includes an account of the preliminary attempts at a medical cure, and the conferences of physicians headed by Rafael Sagaz. Verses by the grateful and rejuvenated patient, Jose Florencio de Mora Palacios, a householder merchant, close the account" -- Wellcome Catalogue. Medina calls for a portrait, but this is believed to be a ghost as it is not found in the copies at the Wellcome, Huntington, the Bancroft, or the National Library of Medicine. A scarce and rather grim Mexican medical work, with only a handful of copies in OCLC.
