A Tapeworm in the Eye.-A letter from Berlin relates the following singular fact :—The son of a shop- keeper, residing in Berlin, having complained that he could not see so well as usual with one of his eyes, was conducted to the establishment of Dr. Greafe. On ex- amining the patient, the doctor said it was lucky the child had been promptly brought to him, for he declared that immediately behind the iris of the affected eye there was a tapeworm! This parasite, he added, would un- doubtedly have soon completely destroyed the organ of vision, in which it had taken up its quarters. The doctor said it was a wonder that such cases were not more fre- quent. Theg arose, he observed, from eating underdone or uncooked meat, aud most generally pork.
