FISCHER'S SYMPTOM

An obsolete sign: in tuberculosis of the mediastinal or peri-bronchial glands, after bending the patient's head as far back as possible, auscultation over the manubrium sterni will sometimes reveal a continuous loud murmur caused by the pressure of the enlarged glands on the big mediastinal vessels. Synonym: Fischer's symptom.
