Anus and Stool
Aching in anus, with seeming inability to keep the sphincter closed, amounting to dysenteric straining at stool. Urging to stool in morning on rising, with scanty stool, small in size, as if anus were contracted, mushy with small scybalae, and of peculiar black color, resembling faeces of an ox, with straining as in dysentery.

Acute catarrhal pneumonia, with caseous degeneration and fibrosis. Fibroid degeneration of the lung, with inflammation had haemorrhage; commencing cavity. In general, many cases of pulmonary disease, pneumonia, subacute and chronic, and various forms of phthisis pulmonaris have been cured, the special indications being great debility, night-sweats either after the cavity is formed or when a cavity threatens to form, with a decidedly cachectic condition of the patient. It seems probable that in the Iodide of Arsenic we have found a remedy most closely allied to manifestations of tuberculosis; it well be indicated by a profound prostration, rapid, irritable pulse, recurring fever and sweats, emaciation, tendency to diarrhoea, etc. It is especially valuable in nontubercular phthisis.
Clinical.- A number of cases of weakness of the heart have been reported as relieved, and it undoubtedly acts similarly to Arsenic in such cases; unfortunately nearly all the cases reported have been treated with a combination of other drugs with this one, so that perhaps as much credit should be given to the other drugs as to the Arsen. iod.
