It frequently occurs to surgeons to receive slight wounds upon the

hands which prove very troublesome. Of this kind is the following.



Mr. L.C. had an irritable and inflamed sore on the ulnar side of the

third finger, occasioned by a bruise a fortnight ago. Many

applications had been made during this fortnight but the sore had no

disposition to heal. I applied the lunar caustic to form an adherent

eschar.



From this time the pain and inflammation subsided. The eschar remained

firm and adherent, and in six days separated leaving the wound

healed.
