In these maladies injections of sulphate of cadmium have been used by Lincke, but possess no evident advantage over injections of sulphate of zinc.

Preparations And Dose

Unguentum cadmii iodidi (contains 62 gr. in 1 oz. of simple ointment). Cadmii sulphas: dose, 1/12 to 1/2 gr.; for col-lyrium, 1/2 to 4 gr. in 1 oz. of rose-water (Fronmuller); for ointment, 4 gr. in 1 oz. of lard; for injection, 2 gr. in 1 oz. of water; these formulae seem somewhat inconsistent with Bouchardat's statement that the salt is ten times as powerful as the sulphate of zinc.
