Abstract

Since the publication in 1919 of the preliminary laboratory and clinical study of "mercurochrome-220," 1 this compound has been used extensively in many urologic conditions in the Brady Urological Institute and in other genito-urinary and gynecologic services and dispensaries. The satisfactory results in urologic practice have led to its application in other branches of medicine and surgery in which a deeply penetrating, nonirritating germicide of low toxicity and relatively quick action is desired. As a result of our experience with this drug over a period of two years, we believe that our early expectations of its great value have been realized. In manycases it has proved effective when other drugs have failed, and there have been cases in which the reverse was true. It is no more a panacea for all urinary infections than is any other disinfecting agent, but it is unquestionably a valuable addition to the comparatively few
