REPORT ON A NEW FORM OF THERAPY FOR PSORIASIS

REPORT ON A NEW FORM OF THERAPY FOR PSORIASIS Abstract In the Archives for October, 1930, Campbell and Frost made a preliminary report on a new method of treatment for psoriasis, consisting of intramuscular injections of a suspension in alcohol of the patient's own scales. When obtainable. 0.2 Gm. of the scales was suspended in 20 cc. of alcohol. The dosage was from 1 to 4 cc., the average, 1.5 cc., being given every three or four days. They treated fifteen patients in this way, with varying degrees of improvement in all. The length of treatment necessary for improvement was not given, except that it varied in different cases. The signs of improvement observed were in four stages: (1) thinning and loosening of the scales; (2) paling of the centers; (3) disappearance of parts of the border, leaving only a few papules at the edge of a slightly discolored area of smooth skin, and (4) complete disappearance of these http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Dermatology and Syphilology American Medical Association
