GONORRHEAL OPHTHALMIA—REPORT OF A CASE TREATED WITH ARGONIN.

GONORRHEAL OPHTHALMIA—REPORT OF A CASE TREATED WITH ARGONIN. C. D. R., male, aged 33. First seen Nov. 25, 1896. Two weeks before, right eye became sore, for which he was treated by his family physician. It was extremely painful until two days before, when something seemed to give way and water gushed from between the lids, after which it became easier. There was an abundant purulent discharge. The cornea was not clear at any point but had a fleshy appearance and bulged from the general curvature of the eyeball (total staphyloma). The man lived at some distance in the country and failed to attend regularly, coming only once or twice a week. For two weeks he was treated in the usual way with boracic acid, bichlorid and nitrate of silver with very little effect on the discharge, which was abundant from the time first seen. A microscopic examination by Dr. E. C. Anderson, chief of the Microscopic Laboratory http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
