Actinomycosis.  —O. BujwiD reports seven cases of actinomycosis observed by him in three years. The first two cases occurred in a young printer and his betrothed. The abscesses which had formed were incised, cleansed and dressed antiseptically. Up to the present time, eighteen months after the operation, there has been no return of the disease. The third case occurred in a chimney sweeper. In this case also the abscesses were opened and scraped out, but from time to time the disease recurred. In the last year the writer has observed three other cases similar to the ones already described, and one case of cutaneous actinomycosis of unknown origin occurring in a chimney sweeper. In the writer's opinion the treatment should be of a radical character, though the prognosis, even in cases where there is abscess formation with mixed infection, is not unfavorable.—Wiener Med.
