A CASE OF MALIGNANT SYPHILIS CURED BY ZITTMANN'S DECOCTION.
BY GRANVILLE MACGOWAN, M.D.,
IN the course of the discussion of the very valuable paper of Dudley Tait, upon the intravenous injections of mercury in the treatment of syphilis, at the last session of this society, speaking entirely from retrospective experience, I recommended the use of the decoction of Zittmann in very malignant cases of syphilis that proved rebellious to the influence of mercury or the iodides. Dr. Chismore spoke favorably of the virtues of this preparation in similar cases. . . .
