HORTZ reports a number of cases in which he has filled in the space left after the excision of large pterygia by grafts from the skin behind the ear. He makes the graft a little smaller than the denuded space, in the horizontal direction. Both eyes are bandaged for 48 hours. In four reported cases there was but one failure.
