ELI MOSCHOWITZ. (Med. Record,1906, vol. lxix.60.)
Moschowitz has applied Bier's principle of localized hyperæmia to the treatment of acne. Dry cups with rubber bulb attachment, of a diameter of ¾ to 1½ inches, are applied once (or better twice) a day for one hour; they are left on for 1 to 2 minutes, then removed to permit a new influx of blood and then applied again; the suction must be but slight, so that no mark is left. The treatment must be repeated on the same area until all pustules have disappeared; each area needs 2 to 5 applications. The reappearance of new pustules is not prevented and requires resumption of the treament. So far 8 cases had been treated by the method.
