Entry: peritonitis (n.)

In context: "- then unbelieveable psychic pain, a kind of peritonitis of the soul..."

Definition: Peritonitis is an inflammation of the peritoneum, the thin tissue that lines the inner wall of the abdomen and covers most of the abdominal organs. Peritonitis may be localised or generalised, and may result from infection (often due to rupture of a hollow organ as may occur in abdominal trauma or appendicitis) or from a non-infectious process

Other: I'm not going to lie: a part of me, maybe all of me, cringes whenever I hit a slew of medical terms.
