Mrs. H.- age 28, married, came to me for treatment. She had a sore on the red part of the lower lip as large as a hickory nut. It was dry and covered with a scab; it was hard as horn; it had been several months forming and was quite painful. The sub-maxillary gland was enlarged and hard. The lymphatics were enlarged on the right side of the neck and she had enlarged tonsils. The history of tuberculosis was in the family and she had been told that this was an epithelioma. Several dry scales had been removed and as soon as one had separated a new one had formed.
She got Mercurius proto-iod 100 (home-made), one dose every four days. It healed in five weeks-perfectly, I with hold my opinion as to diagnosis. I have neglected to mention that it had been deeply cauterized before calling upon me for treatment.
