A little over a year ago I reviewed the literature of the use of Roentgen rays in the treatment of diseases of the skin.1 The subject is of active interest and there have been frequent contributions to it during the last year, so that I trust I am warranted in bringing the review down to the present time and adding to this a brief account of my own experience.
