Action and Uses of Thallin Sulphate

This drug was introduced into medicine as an antipyretic, but it was soon abandoned because of the dangerous collapse with marked cyanosis which it produced. It is rarely given internally, because it is poisonous to the red blood corpuscles and to the nervous system. Its chief use is as an injection for gonorrhoea, in aqueous solution (1 or 2 to 120), or it can be used in a 2 per cent. solution in gelatin bougies. In gleet beneficial results have followed the injection of 1 to 8 aqueous solutions.
