Abstract

In view of the gratifying results obtained in the first series of cases we reported,1 it was considered desirable to follow up this work with a larger group for a longer period of time in order to corroborate or refute our earlier findings. We recognized that many methods used in the past had been vaunted, only to be found wanting by the test of time. The following report is made on data collected in about fifty cases observed over a period of more than two years.

We believe that the results demonstrate that the method employed is of definite value in certain cases, and that it can justifiably be added to our armamentarium ; but like all other methods, it is by no means a specific. We present herewith data relative to psoriasis, with special reference to the present method and its accompanying sequelae.
