To the Editor:
—Referring to Weidman's note on Priority in Treatment of Bromide Intoxication (The Journal, October 25, p. 1281), Dr. Herman Goldenberg stated (The Journal, November 29, p. 1689) that, though he used the salt treatment of the latter condition before Harris and Hauser and Wile and his co-workers, he does not know who was the originator of this method.In an article published in the Neurologisches Centralblatt (29: 74, 1910), Ulrich, inspired, as he states, by the experiments of von Wyss, successfully treated bromide intoxication with sodium chloride. Internal doses were from 2 to 3 Gm. three times daily, while the dermatoses, acne and ulcers, yielded to applications of a 10 per cent sodium chloride solution in the form of moist dressings, and 1 per cent solution used as a mouth wash relieved the fetid odor.
