A young man (twenty-eight) called on me for treatment. I found a gleety discharge, entirely painless, gluing the meatus in the morning. He had contracted gonorrhoea several months before, and it had nearly stopped discharging. Five years ago he had an attack of gonorrhoea which resulted in producing a stricture for which he had been operated on. I could only pass a No. 8 bougie at this time.

The symptoms upon which to base a prescription were: Slight painless discharge, gluing the meatus; sickly, sallow face; constipation, sour stomach, general debility.

He took Sepia cm, one dose, dry; then Sac. Lac.

The next night he sent a note, saying he was very sick; to please send him medicine; that the discharge had come back.

I sent him Sac. Lac., requesting him to come to the office as soon as possible.

He called in a few days, he said the medicine sent him gave great relief. The discharge was profuse, thick and yellow. Sac Lac. was given, and advised to call in a week.

Next call; Discharge yellowish green; some pain on micturition; night sweats. bone pains; worse during the perspirations; had a chill during night.

Mercurius sol. 6000 in water every three hours for twenty four hours and Sac. Lac.

One week later; Symptoms all improved; discharge diminished. Mercurius.sol. 6000, one dose; then Sac. Lac.

One week later; Discharge nearly gone; feeling well; Possesses as large a stream of urine as ever. He took one dose a week of Mercurius so]. 6000.

At the end of the three months passed a No. 14 bougie. No discharge. He is in good health. The bougie passed without effort. The two remedies had completely cured the stricture and the treatment was painless. Could anything have been more satisfactory?.

James Tyler Kent
James Tyler Kent (1849–1916) was an American physician. Prior to his involvement with homeopathy, Kent had practiced conventional medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. He discovered and "converted" to homeopathy as a result of his wife's recovery from a serious ailment using homeopathic methods.
In 1881, Kent accepted a position as professor of anatomy at the Homeopathic College of Missouri, an institution with which he remained affiliated until 1888. In 1890, Kent moved to Pennsylvania to take a position as Dean of Professors at the Post-Graduate Homeopathic Medical School of Philadelphia. In 1897 Kent published his magnum opus, Repertory of the Homœopathic Materia Medica. Kent moved to Chicago in 1903, where he taught at Hahnemann Medical College.
