Abstract

This exceedingly rare disease of the cornea I have met but twice in a private and dispensary practice extending over a period of more than ten years. Researches made for literature upon the subject yield scanty returns, as many other specialists appear to have been even less favored, and some of the articles are quite vague, and rather evince the idea that the writer has not personally come in contact with the disease. Mr. 0-had been suffering for seven months from a recurring sensation of irritation in the lower lid, as he supposed, of the right eye. At night, it was only after firm pressure and much rubbing, that he was able to keep the lid closed, and frequently was not able to sleep on account of the irritation. Upoil examination I found a small vesicle on the cornea, near its margin, which, on being punctured, discharged a minute quantity
