Excerpt: ...Reliniiia, presenting the Clinical Picture of Panophthalmitis.--I have seen acute traumatic purulent retinitis most frequently after foreign bodies, especially in cases in which pieces of percussion-caps had entered the interior of the eye through the cornea; less frequently when they had passed through the sclera.

I have carefully studied the connection between acute traumatic purulent retinitis and traumatic panophthalmitis in a long series of panophthalmitic eyeballs from my large collection, and have published the results based upon an examination of twenty-six cases.1 Since that time I have examined another series (sixteen eyes) with the same affection, and have arrived at the following conclusions: 1. The clinical picture of traumatic panophthalmitis is far from being identical with that of acute purulent chorioiditis, contrary to what thus far seems to have been the general opinion. 2. To the clinical picture of traumatic panophthalmitis corresponds originally as its anatomical basis an acute traumatic purulent retinitis in some cases, more
