Appellant, a federal prisoner at the United States Penitentiary, Atlanta, Georgia, complains in this habeas proceeding of the medical attention he has received. He admits that he has been treated by four different physicians, some of whom are specialists, while in prison.


We agree with the district court that the allegations presented do not take this case out of the category of matters of prison administration and that no abuse of discretion on the part of prison authorities has been shown. Thompson v. Blackwell, 5th Cir. 1967, 374 F.2d 945.
