Recommended Posts

Hi, can anybody please enlighten me as to what the term 'ICT Leg' means?  I came across it on a Casualty Clearing Station admissions register (along with other versions such as ICT Foot etc).  I did do a search but didn't find anything, so apologies if this has been covered before!

Ah yes, but what did they actually mean when they wrote  that in the notes?

Connective tissue is a histological term that includes the fibrous/elastic structures that hold things together.

You have connective tissue in skin, bone, muscles, all your organs, in your eyes and brains.

Blood is a connective tissue.

 

So what does ICT mean?

Who knows?

Generally it means skin infection, or a swollen joint, totally different diseases, but both falling under the ICT umbrella.

I came across this in my grandfather's records 

34 FA          Adm ICT Knee R         Field             15.6.17

11 CCS       Adm ICT Knee R         Field             15.6.17

3 Can GH   Adm ICT L Thigh          Boulogne     16.6.17

 

It would appear that before reaching 3 Can GH (Canadian General Hospital?) the ICT migrated from his right leg to his left, unless it's a clerical error on the part of whoever entered up the record.

 

He did seem to have had problems with his right knee as there are two more entries in June and August 1917 for boils right knee.
