The duration was ten years. She had been treated by various therapeutic remedies with no result.On Oct. 26, 1927, the patient commenced treatment with injections of a gold compound, one each week, receiving twelve for the first course; as the urine showed albumin and casts, the treatment was discontinued for a while. The second course was started on March 14, 1928, at which time nine doses were given, and then the treatment was discontinued again. The next course was instituted on September 5, continuing to November 14, the patient receiving seven treatments more.When she returned on November 21, the eruption was worse
