The local application of Aureomycin ointment in 74 cases of tropical (phadegaenic sloughing) ulcer of the leg, foot and nail bed, proved to be an effective remedy. The treatment is simple, ambulant and inexpensive, costing approximately 3 1/2d. for each of the one to seven dressings required. Healing was as rapid as has been descriptionbed in any other non-surgical method of treatment.
