Translation:

The Greek word parachisis describes the diffusion of the humours through the whole body, according to Cassius Felix, in the chapter "On dropsy".


Commentary:

Simon refers to Cassius Felix, De medicina, 76, ed. Fraisse (2001: 202-9). Ad hydropicos {"For those with dropsy"}, 76, 12, ed. Fraisse (2001: 208): Epithima Filagrii conveniens hydropicis ad diffusiones humoris per totum corpus, quas parecchysis dicunt – "The 'external application by Philagrius' suitable for those with dropsy for the diffusions of humour through the whole body, which the Greeks call parachisis".

Greek παρέκχυσις /parékkhysis/ "effusion" < παρεκχέω /parekkhéō/ "pour out by degrees".
