Latin term or phrase:Constractura et defectus cutis popliteae lat.sin.poat combustionem
A shortening and deformity of the skin of the knee concealed after a burn.
Explanation: 'Concealed (lit., hiding) after a burn' depends on whether 'lat.sin.poat' is a corruption for 'latentes post', which is uncertain (they are definitely not standard abbreviations). Moreover, the skin referred to may be of the ham rather than of the knee, since 'poples' is used of both.
