In Athens, a man contracted itching on his whole body, especially his testicles and his forehead. It was extremely severe. The skin was thick on his whole body and like leprosy in appearance. You couldn't even remove any of the skin because of its thickness. No one was able to help him. Having gone to Melos, however, where there are thermal baths, he was relieved of the itching and the thick skin. On the other hand, he became dropsical and died.
Ἀθήνῃσιν, ἄνθρωπος ξυσμῷ εἴχετο πᾶν τὸ σῶμα, μάλιστα δὲ τοὺς ὄρχιας καὶ τὸ μέτωπον, εἴχετο δὲ πάνυ σφόδρα, καὶ τὸ δέρμα παχὺ ἦν καθ' ἅπαν τὸ σῶμα, καὶ οἷόν περ λέπρη τὴν πρόσοψιν· καὶ οὐκ ἂν ἀπέλαβες οὐδαμόθεν τοῦ δέρματος ὑπὸ τῆς παχύτητος· τοῦτον οὐδεὶς ἠδύνατο ὠφελῆσαι· διελθὼν δὲ ἐς Μῆλον, ᾗ τὰ θερμὰ λοετρὰ, τοῦ μὲν κνησμοῦ ἐπαύσατο καὶ τῆς παχυδερμίης· ὑδρωπιήσας δὲ ἔθανεν.
Eurydamas, in Oineiadai, went mad on the tenth day of a lung inflammation. When he was treated, he came back to his senses, his saliva became clearer, and the disease took a turn for the better. Then much sleep poured over him, his eyes became jaundiced, and he died near the twentieth day.
Εὐρυδάμας, ἐν Οἰνειάδῃσιν, ἐν περιπλευμονίῃ δεκαταῖος ἤρχετο παρακόπτειν· ἰητρευόμενος δὲ κατενόησέ τε, καὶ τὰ πτύαλα ἐγένετο καθαρώτερα, καὶ προχωρέουσα ἡ νοῦσος ἐπὶ τὸ βέλτιον, ὕπνος τε αὐτέῳ κατεχύθη πουλὺς, καὶ τὰ ὄμματα ἰκτερώδεα ἐγένετο, καὶ ἀπέθανε πρὸς τὰς εἴκοσιν ἡμέρας.
