Ulcers Case Xxvi





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

The following case occurred in the person of a lady with varicose
veins and far advanced in pregnancy. Its speedy cure by the caustic
was, therefore, the more remarkable, and saved her much trouble and
suffering.

Mrs. C. aged 40, had two small irritable and inflamed ulcers, under
the inner ankle. I applied the lunar caustic to form an eschar.

It was requisite to evacuate a little fluid from under the eschars for
three successive days; they then remained adherent.

About the usual time the eschars separated, leaving a small point of
the size of a pin's head, unhealed; this I again touched with the
caustic. The case required no further attention.

This case leads me to caution my readers always to examine the parts
carefully after the separation of the eschars, and if there be the
slightest ulcer remaining to apply the caustic to it.
