THE NEW CURE AT THE LONDON HOSPITAL. An interesting department has been opened at the London Hospital for the treatment of lupus and some other diseases of the skin by Professor Sinsen's method of Phototherapy, or light treatment." This work is being carried on in connection with the Department for Diseases of the Skin, and is superin- tended by the physicians in charge thereof and under the immediate care of the special dermatological, clinical assistant. The introduction of this method of treatment at the London Hospital, the first in Great Britain to adopt it, is due to Her Royal High- ness the Princess of Wales, who has taken the greatest interestin it since she first saw it carried out in Copen- hagen. Her Royal Highness presented the necessary and expensive apparatus required, being roost anxious that its benefits should be extended to the poor of London. The treatment consists in the ap- plication of the chemical rays of light either by sun- light or by the electric light by means of carefully- arranged appliances. The arrangement has now been in operation for upwards of three weeks up to the present; four patients only have been treated free of expense in the mornings, but it is intended to de- vote the afternoons to the treatment of those who can afford to pay. Nurses have been specially trained for the work at Copenhagen.
