Prolonged Survival after Extensive Fracture of the Pelvis. —Dr. S. D. Howard, of Elk Grove, Cal., reports the following case: On October 31, 1887, T.

A mass of earth, that must have weighed about 300 pounds, struck him over the lumbar and gleutal regions, throwing him against the hub of a wagon wheel which impinged on the pelvis in front.
