Ulcers Case Xxiv

The following case must not be regarded as altogether trifling. For

such sores are very apt to spread and to remain long very

troublesome.



An old gentleman came to me with an oblong ulcer on the shin about an

inch in length; it was very painful and inflamed. I applied the lunar

caustic to form an eschar and requested him to call on the following

morning. He did not come, however, but on seeing him the next day it

was requisite to evacuate a little fluid; this was repeated on they

third day, after which period the eschar remained adherent, and the

part totally free from pain.



The eschar separated in about three weeks leaving the part healed.
