After falling from a wagon, a laborer, aged twenty-one, was found by Franke to have a left pulsating exophthalmus. Digital compression of the common carotid was employed without any result, so ligation of the left common carotid was done, and, the result of this not being satisfactory, the other carotid was ligated, after which the exophthalmus gradually disappeared.
