Clinical Cases

Natrum phos. 3x relieved pressure in thirteen cases of goitre by taking a dose three times a day; pressure was relieved in from three to five days. In some instances a cure was effected. It is well to continue the medicine from four to six weeks. (J. S. Skeels, M D.. Hahnemannian Monthly, 1880).

A swelling under the chin the size of a pigeon's egg was considerably reduced by Kali mur., but still there was induration (hardness) with an uneven surface Calcarea fluor., taken for a few days, caused it to disappear altogether. Shortly after its disappearanee the patient had slight conjunctivitis with swelling, which Kali mur. soon cured. (Dr. K. From Schussler).

Grauvogl, in his Text-book, page 360. gives a remarkable result from six weeks' use of Natrum sulph. in a case of chronic swelling of the cervical glands, so extensive as to practically obliterate the neck. All known treat ment the universities failed; but Natrum sulph. 3x, every two hours, proent in the swelling and general health of the patient. ICA iN Adenoid Growths - Dr. G. H. Martin retated al the meeting of the California State Horn. Medical Society a case of a boy, 12 years of age, who had an adenoid growth which caused nasal catarrh and deafness of one car to such a degree that he could not hear the watch when pressed close to the ear. "By the administration of Calcarea phosphorica," he said, "for four mouths, the patient can now hear the watch at six feet, and the catarrh has almost entirely disappeared," - Pacific Coast Joum. of Ham.

Calcarea Fluorata In Long-Lasting And Indolent Glandular Enlargements Of The Cervical Lymphatics

Dr. Sybel speaks very highly of the fluoride of lime in the treatment of indolent and long-lasting glandular enlargements of the cervical lymphatics, and especially where the hardness of the gland is pronounced. He thinks that similar results might be obtained in enlarged bronchial and mesenteric glands.

Success was obtained in a number of cases; the three following are presented as typical examples of its action:

1. An unmarried woman, of twenty-five years, had had for many years a group of enlarged glands, which, situated under the right side of the lower jaw, decidedly disfigured her face. Beyond a small gland at the margin of the group, which showed a tendency to suppurate, the whole mass was hard, showed no inclination to inflame, and was not sensitive to pressure. The small and suppurating gland healed, with a discharge of a caseous mass, under Hepar siilpti and Silicea, yet the general enlargement remained unaltered. Calcarea fluorica 5x was then given once a day. In three weeks the patient claimed a slight diminution, and as this gradually became more pronounced the remedy was continued, so that in six to eight weeks the conglomerate mass resolved itself into Isolated glands, which finally remained of the size of hazel nuts The patient thought all further treatment unnecessary, and immediately married. The time of treatment lasted from April 25th to the end of November - a relatively short time for such an inveterate affection.

2. A robust young man of twenty years presented in the right submaxillary region, immediately under the jawbone, a conglomerate of several hard lymphatic glands, which, by their size, had a very deforming effect upon his entire face: one at the edge, of the size of a ha/el nut, was apparently about to suppurate. The remainder were hard and painless; they had been noticed since childhood, though (hey had attained their present size only four or five years ago. Silica and Kalichloratum controlled the suppuration, and Cal-carta fluorata in alternation with the Chlorate of potash were continued, one of each powder daily. The diminution in size of the glands was continuously noticeable, and at the end of sixteen months they had wholly Jut-appeared.

3. An unmarried woman of fifty years had carried for years an indurated gland in the right submaxillary region of the size of a small ben's egg, but which was neither red nor painful. She had tried all sorts of external remedies without success. Calcarea fluorata 5x, one powder morning and evening, and later, only one a day, caused the enlargement to disappear in six weeks; a relatively short time for a glandular enlargement which had persisted for eight years.

In a child of five years, who for the past two had had numerous and in-duraW glandular enlargements ill the submaxillary region, the same drug in the fifth decimal trituration dissipated them in a few weeks. - Berliner Zeitschift.
