Hand after Three Weeks Treatment. SKIN DISEASES 235 In Plate II. is shown a patient after the ray had removed notonly a widely disseminated recurrent cancer of the chest,but had «also obliterated the hypertrophic reddened scar ofoperation. Varney has treated a number of patients with disfiguringscars from variola. In those treated early, when a gradualerythema was produced and epithelial cells rapidly filledthe discolored pits, mild irradiation for a period of threeweeks was followed by desquamation, after which tracesof the pits were difficult to discover. I have seen somebenefit in the pits left by acne, syphilis, operation, wounds,burns, lupus, and scrofuloderma. In Plate XVIII. is shown disfiguring cicatrices due to lueshereditaria which were improved by the ray in conjunctionwith electrolysis. In one case where hypertrophied scar tissue was formedafter an operation for tuberculous glands of the neck, Harris^was successful in removing it after three months intermittenttreatment.
