The author uses comparatively large amounts of 5 per cent phenolized oil for the treatment of internal hemorrhoids and also for pruritus ani. External hemorrhoids are excluded from this form of treatment. A clear description of the technic, instruments and solution is given, followed by a number of illustrative case reports. Quotations from other authors, proctologic opinions, rather deduct from than add to the uniformity of presentation. Mention is not made of possible harm to the kidneys and general toxic symptoms after the use of such large doses of phenol.
