Abstract

It was suggested on March 22, '92, that as everything possible had already been done without the patient getting well, that the constant immersion in a bath, as recommended by Hebra, be essayed. This authority claims to have saved four cases by this treatment. He kept one patient in the bath 100 days, and nine months later, the same patient had a relapse and was again subjected to the same treatment for 109 days and was cured. Good results and cures were had in three other cases where the subjects remained in the bath 76, 47 and 26 respectively. A full description of this method of treatment is found in Hebra's writings. The bath treatment was tried in this instance but with no success.
