The nature of gunshot wounds of the abdomen, and their treatment: Based on a review of the case of the late James Fisk, Jr., in its medico-legal aspects.

New York: William Wood, 1874.

Peugnet argued that over-medication, and not the pistol shot, caused Fisk's death. Peugnet, a surgeon who had served in the American Civil War, died at the early age of 43, having been struck by a locomotive while absent-mindedly standing on a railroad track.
