Bruises Case Xvi
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
J. Jennings, bricklayer, aged 26, fell through the roof of a house and
bruised and lacerated his shin rather severely to the extent of an
inch and half in one part and in several other places in a less
degree. I applied the lunar caustic to the wound immediately.
On the following day the eschar was found to be adherent, and there
was neither pain nor swelling.
The eschars separated in nine days leaving the wounds healed.
It is remarkable that the eschar remains a greater or less time over
the wound according to the severity and exigency of the case. This
case being less severe than the former one the eschar remained upon
the wound during a much shorter period of time.
