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.
