Bruises Case Xix
Category: ON THE APPLICATION OF THESE MODES OF TREATMENT TO PARTICULAR CASES.
Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers
Robert Hill, aged 16, received a blow yesterday from a bone which was
thrown at him, upon the outer condyle of the humerus. He complains of
extreme pain and there are much redness and swelling. I applied the
lunar caustic and directed the part to be exposed to the cold air.
On the succeeding day, I found that the eschar was quite adherent, and
that the pain, redness and swelling had much subsided, although there
was some stiffness of the elbow.
On the third day there was still further amendment. From this time no
remedy or attention was required.
