C. Cocking, aged 17, has an ulcer of the size of half-a-crown on the
inner part of the knee, occasioned by an accident. He had been a month
under surgical care in the country when he applied to me, but the
ulcer continued without disposition to heal, and fungous; it had
apparently been treated by a solution of sulphate of copper. I applied
the lunar caustic over the surface of the sore and upon the

piercing it a little fluid escaped. The incision into the eschar was
repeated three or four successive days, but the eschar still retained

In two days the eschar was separated leaving the ulcer with its
fungous appearance. I removed the fungous part by scissors, and
directed the poultice to be applied and to be continued for two days.
I then formed another eschar. This required a daily puncture for the
evacuation of subjacent fluid, for six days; it then remained
adherent, and in about a fortnight it separated leaving the ulcerated
surface healed. This patient was not at all confined.
