A FURTHER REPORT ON THE TREATMENT OF TUBERCULOSIS BY IODOFORM INUNCTIONS.

A FURTHER REPORT ON THE TREATMENT OF TUBERCULOSIS BY IODOFORM INUNCTIONS. Preliminary to making this report it may be proper for me to say that for some years I have been substituting in the majority of my cases europhen for iodoform because of its less offensive odor. I have long since satisfied my mind that the benefit derived from iodoform is due to the nascent iodin given off from the decomposition of iodoform which takes place, either in the tissues of the body or in the blood. Finding iodoform very offensive and having been informed that europhen is even more rich in iodin than is iodoform, I was induced to take up europhen as a substitute, and have found it equally useful, if not more useful in the treatment of tuberculosis.

Abstract

Preliminary to making this report it may be proper for me to say that for some years I have been substituting in the majority of my cases europhen for iodoform because of its less offensive odor. I have long since satisfied my mind that the benefit derived from iodoform is due to the nascent iodin given off from the decomposition of iodoform which takes place, either in the tissues of the body or in the blood. Finding iodoform very offensive and having been informed that europhen is even more rich in iodin than is iodoform, I was induced to take up europhen as a substitute, and have found it equally useful, if not more useful in the treatment of tuberculosis. On Nov. 12, 1890, in a paper on "The Treatment of Tuberculosis," before the Philadelphia County Medical Society, I first mentioned the use of iodoform by inunction. In that paper
