Chorea.

Problems:

Editor Ellingwood's Therapeutist:

Relative to the discussion of the treatment of chorea in your July THERAPEUTIST, and the request for opinions of different physicians—I beg to submit the following:

During forty-five years of active practise of medicine, I have been called upon to prescribe for about the average number of cases suffering from chorea, and I cannot recall a single instance of failure to cure.

My prescriptions invariably have been, macrotys rac. and scutellaria, each two drachms, water to make four ounces, dose teaspoonful every four hours. Late years I have used "Lloyd's specific" medicines, while formerly I always made my own.

D. H. ARTHERHOLT, M. D.
