Reaction to Gold Therapy

Reaction to Gold Therapy Abstract To the Editor.— In response to our report of "Glittering with Gold Therapy" (Archives 114:287-288,1978), Hermann Pinkus, MD, (written communication, March 8,1978) called our attention to a report by Moore1 (1935) of a similar reaction to gold therapy:A man about 30 years of age, with a chronic infective arthritis affecting the larger joints and spine, was receiving aurotherapy. He had remarked to me that particles of gold sometimes came out of his fingers. On one occasion, seven minutes after an intramuscular injection of 0.2 gm of an oily suspension of aurothioglucose, I saw in the sweat on the volar aspects of his fingers shining particles of gold. As this happened after a subsequent injection, a very rapid absorption of the salt was suggested. The fact that the sweat glands act as excretory organs for the salt is also very interesting. I have never noticed this in any other References 1. Moore T: Reactions following gold injections . Br Med J 1:389, 1935.Crossref 2.
