Trichlorethylene has been used for some time in the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. Its therapeutic activity in regard to this condition has been discussed by Glaser,1, 2 and an extensive bibliography of its use for this purpose is given in his papers. It has also been used as an anodyne in dental procedures and for dental pain3, 4 and with some success as an anesthetic for operations upon the face.5 In a conversation with Dr. David Bryce in which the discussion turned upon angina pectoris, it was suggested by him that trichlorethylene might prove of use in preventing such attacks.
