The boy was an in-patient for many weeks at guy's Hospital, where skin grafting was re- torted to, pieces of skin on one lg being re- noved with a razor to the other. These operations, however, were not successful, and T teloid had supervened. Medical evidence was given tftat the plaintiff's disease Was in- surable, and that it might be tuberculous. Vobody really knew what keloid was. Dr. Lawson Brown said that keloid was rery cojttmdn among the natives of West Africa, being due to the use of dirty knives '0 cn marking their skins.
