Sometimes the parotid and submaxillary glands were inflamed; petechiae were absent.
petechiae almost black came out, having an outer circle with an inner dark speck; sometimes there were the larger vibices.
The earlier these petechiae appear, the fresher in colour, and the longer they continue out, the better (p. 5).
In some few there were spots on the skin, but hardly ever petechiae or tumours near the ears.
For, if perhaps you should except the petechiae, they differ rather in degree than in kind.
plural petechiae, "small crimson or purple spots on skin," c.1795 (from 1580s in English texts as an Italian word), Modern Latin, from Italian petecchia "specks or freckles on the face," in plural form petecchie "measles," of unknown origin. Related: Petechial.
