Abstract

Mr. M., aged 56 years, a robust man of regular habits, noticed in August, 1887, a gradual failing of the sight of his right eye; and by the end of September the sight was entirely extinguished. Up to that time he had no pain or unpleasant feeling in or about his eye; but during October he had frequent paroxysms of violent pain in the blind eye and extending over the right side of the head.

October 29, after a very severe attack of this headache, Mr. M. called for a consultation, and the examination of the eye showed the following conditions:

"Slight œdema of the upper lid; fulness of conjunctival and episcleral veins; hazy and lusterless cornea; shallow anterior chamber; pupil immobile and dilated ad maximum; lens transparent, but vitreous absolutely impenetrable for light; T. + 3: no perception. L.E.V.= with + 2 D.; normal fundus."
