Abstract

To the Editor:  —Those using emetin solutions should be very careful not to get any in the eyes. This accident is followed by a very severe reaction. There is no pain at first, but in about eight hours there is an uncomfortable, "scratchy" feeling, intense photophobia and lacrimation, with conjunctival and some circumcorneal injection. Duration is about two days. To date I have seen two cases. A detailed report of these cases will be published later.
