Introduction: An inodorous insipid substance, coming in white shining unctuous scales. It occurs most abundantly in the bile and biliary calculi. This remedy is indicated in obstinate hepatic engorgements when it is doubtful whether the condition is malignant or not. It is said to have cured cancer of the liver. It is also of service in hepatic enlargement with hepatic colic, dependent upon either gall stones or inspissated bile. The patient is cachectic, the skin is tawny, the conjunctivae are yellow, and insomnia is present. It should be remembered in organic liver diseases when the commoner hepatics fail.
