Pathological Physiology and General Pathology


It was shown by means of a method of scanning photometry, suggested by the writers, that in rabbits with experimental keratitis the response in the zone of a corneal burn consists of three phases: an increase in fluorescein absorption in the reactive stage, loss of ability to absorb fluorescein in the degenerative stage, and a second increase in absorption in the regenerative stage. These phasic changes can be used for the diagnosis of keratitis and for an objective evaluation of its clinical course.
