Respiratory Organs

      Clinical. A most brilliant cure was made of an obstinate case of membranous bronchitis, which for months had resisted all other treatment; the paroxysms recurred every two or three weeks; each time it seemed as if the patient would die, until extensive casts of the membrane of the bronchi were expectorated; entirely cured by this drugs.
