Abstract

G. H., æt. 17, father and mother living, several other children. Patient came complaining of difficulty in using her eyes. There was a large amount of photophobia, considerable blepharitis and some conjunctivitis, the two eyes being about equally affected. There was no entropion, but the upper lids were considerably swollen and there were practically no cilia on the lower lids, about three or four, stunted in growth on each under lid. On the upper lids the cilia were more abundant, but still there were few in number and stunted in growth. The supercilia presented, however, the most striking features. They were so short and stubby on both sides, especially towards the temporal region, that I could not be persuaded that she had not burned them either intentionally or accidentally. Whilst I was examining her, the Sister Superior of the institution came in the room and at once observing the supercilia
