1 Since writing the above I have seen Dr. Flemming, by whose courtesy I have been enabled to publish these cases, which are at the present time under his care, and he informs me that A. H—, the second case, has had syphilis, but that the condition of his choroid is not suggestive of syphilitic choroiditis; this is, therefore, further evidence in favour of the syphilitic origin of the disease, and would also seem to imply that the loss of sight was not primarily due to disease in the eye itself, but was of more central origin.
