The relation of sensory neuritis to 'neuralgia ' introduces special problems. For an example of right-sides 'meralgia paraesthetica' from involvement of the external cutaneous nerve of the right thigh from right-sided inguinal peri-lymphadenitis connected with right-sided attack of epidydimitis and orchitis due to a bacillus coli infection from the colon (one of several bacillus coli infections connected with a congenital developmental abnormality of the colon causing recurrent attacks of partial faecal obstruction (see my notes of Mr A Compton {surgeon} in my collection 'Miscellaneous...diseases of the nervous system' But Compton himself {I heard later} regards the symptom as 'referred pain' through the crural branch of the genito-crural nerve)
