Abstract

Although there is not a perfect agreement among pathologists as to the identity or non-identity of follicular conjunctivitis and trachoma (that is, as to whether they are independent affections), still the recent text-books on ophthalmology are almost unanimous in making a clinical if not a pathologic distinction between these manifestations. It is not my intention, nor is it necessary in a paper of this description, and on such an occasion, to enter into a dissertation giving the details of the arguments that have been, and are still being brought forward to prove the sameness or dissimilarity of these diseases. It is sufficient for the purposes of this article to state my own position in the controversy without giving the reasons for "the faith that is in me," and thus prevent any misunderstanding of terms.

"Granular lids" is a phrase that I but rarely use, and then always as a synonym
