In this paper MARSHALL demonstrates from microscopical sections what has long been held clinically by many, that the so-called interstitial keratitis is not simply a keratitis but really a uveitis. He shows that almost the first manifestation of the disease is in the form of a serous iritis, and that the iris, ciliary body, and choroid are always involved. For this reason he deems atropine the chief local remedy, particularly in the early stages.
