 +//​{{anchor:​s3}}Verrugosa Acrochordon Chocoe// is a wart-snake of the province of Choco in British Columbia. {{anchor:​s4}}Symptoms following the bite of the snake, and poisonings from the warts, are detailed in Higgins’s //​Ophidians.//​ {{anchor:​s5}}The following notes are collected from Higgins,​%%*[%%//​Ophidians//,​ pp. 44, 45, 99, 111, 201.] and from notes by Dr. S. Swan. Dr. Swan potentized the gall of the snake (//Fel. Acrochordon Chocoe//), and made provings, which confirmed Higgins’s indications.{{anchor:​s6}}†[ //​Advance//,​ June, 1881, p. 349.] Higgins reports the gall capable of anti-doting the bite, if promptly administered.
 +//​{{anchor:​s7}}Symptoms.//​ {{anchor:​s8}}—Lethargy,​ tremblings, distortion of the features, loosening of the hair, blood from pores of skin. {{anchor:​s9}}The bitten limb is thickly covered with small vesicles, filled with an ichorous fluid; when these have attained to the size of a grain of barley they burst, leaving a small sore which increases in size, preserving a funnel shape; they continue sloughing away until they unite one with another, thus destroying all the fleshy substance down to the bone. {{anchor:​s10}}This is accompanied by intense throbbing pain up the limb. {{anchor:​s11}}When the poison does not cause death, it yet, almost invariably, produces these //​funnel-shaped ulcers. {{anchor:​s12}}*//​ * //*// Death often occurs within three hours. {{anchor:​s13}}* * * Immediately after the death of the snake, a thick milk-white fluid exudes from the warts, which, applied to the skin of man or beast, produces a well-nigh incurable ulcer. {{anchor:​s14}}The bile of this snake (ten drops in ten ounces of water) healed, in ten days, a leg, the flesh of which, in consequence of the bite of a Birri snake (called “The Rotter”), had sloughed off up to the knee, leaving the upper surface of the foot and lower leg nearly bare.
 +{{anchor:​s15}}Higgins removed the toxical effects of the poison of the //Vipera Calameris Venenosus rubra//, which produces ulcers held to be otherwise incurable, discharging corrosive yellow ichorous liquid, burning itching, with oedema of the limbs, acute pains in leg, excessive thirst, conjunctival inflammation,​ lacerating headache, pulse 140-160.
 +{{anchor:​s16}}A case of inveterate ulcers of the leg is reported in //​Advance//,​ December, 1880, p. 307, cured by Dr. Nichols with this remedy, CM.
