X-ray Burn on Finger. Presented by DR. MORROW.
The patient, a physician, thirty-six years of age, family and previous history negative, entered upon X-ray work nine years ago. The hands very quickly showed a susceptibility to X-ray dermatitis, but the work was continued for three years with practically no precautions. During this time the patient was under the influence of the X-ray for about two hours each day. In the fourth year comparatively little X-ray work was done, and for the past five years none at all. During the past five years the patient has engaged in surgical work with its attendant scrubbings, but always operated with gloves.
