Passive Uterine Hemorrhage.

Botanical name: 

A woman 43 years of age was suffering from uterine hemorrhage of a passive, painless type. The hemorrhage was very profuse, and the woman lost strength rapidly. Viburnum, ergot, and ipecac were given without results. Tampons were introduced with no effect upon the hemorrhage, after their removal. Half of a teaspoonful of trillium erectum, the fluid extract, was added to a half glass of water, and two teaspoonfuls of this were given every hour. This promptly and permanently arrested the flow, and the patient recovered satisfactorily with tonic treatment.
