Ulcers Case Xxxi





Category: OF SOME ANOMALOUS CASES.
Source: Application Of The Lunar Caustic In The Cure Of Certain Wounds And Ulcers

Mr. S. aged 30, had a sore two inches in length in the groin, the
remains of a phagedenic ulcer. It had remained stationary a whole
fortnight under the ordinary treatment by bandage. I applied the lunar
caustic to form an eschar and then the gold-beater's skin.

The day afterwards, I found the eschar incomplete and I applied the
caustic again. The eschar was still incomplete on the following day,
and the caustic was again required to be applied to the denuded parts.

On examination two days afterwards I found the eschar complete and
adherent.

On the fourth following day, great part of the eschar had separated
leaving the ulcer healed, and I had no occasion to see the patient
again.
