On the analogy of the action of *Thyroidin in myxoedema, *Ooph. Has been used with much success in cases of suffering following excision of the ovaries, and for the climacteric sufferings of women. I have had good results with it in such cases in the lower triturations. It has been suggested as a remedy in ovarian cysts. ***E. Saalfeld (quoted *H. W., xxxii. 296), in view of Landau’s observations on the effect of *Ooph. On the nervous sufferings of women at the climacteric, gave *Ooph. to women suffering from acne rosacea and other skin disorders of the climacteric. A woman, 20, after double oophorectomy had lichen-like eczema. This was greatly relieved by *Ooph. as well as the accompanying nervous symptoms and adiposity. He obtained good results also in some non-climacteric cases as: (1) Acne and seborrhoea in chlorotic women. (2) A case of prurigo which had lasted from childhood in a woman of 26. In this case the itching was better for a short time after the period. This better *during menses may prove a keynote, and relates the remedy to *Zincum met.
