REPORT OF CASES
Case 1 (No. 261).—
A man, aged 36, single, presented himself on June 8, 1920, with four small indurated papules on the corona and an ulceration at the frenulum. Spirochetae pallidae were easily demonstrated. The Wassermann reaction was negative. On June 8 he was given 0.45 gm. of sodium diarsenol; on the 9th he received 0.6 gm. and on the 10th he again received 0.6 gm., that is, he received three doses on each of three successive days.
