Patient.  —A boy, aged 13, of Danish parentage, with frequent attacks of rheumatism during the last few years. He of a hemophiliac and gives the history of several hemorrhages treated by physicians and dentists, with no complete control of hemorrhage in less than fifteen days. One of the worst was from the tongue, and was finally controlled by actual cautery after two weeks of bleeding. Two days before my visit, the boy had been struck above the right eyebrow by a pump handle. The extravasated blood gravitated to the upper eyelid and formed a tumescence which projected at least 1 inch from the forehead. This burst at school and I was called twenty-four hours later.I found projecting from the eyebrow a hollow cone formed of blood which had slowly coagulated, from the end of which blood was dropping at the rate of one drop per second.

Treatment and Result.
