The problem of chilblains is discussed as regards their aetiology and pathogenesis, It is claimed that nicotinic acid, given orally, has a specific effect on chilblains. Twenty seven cares are quoted to prove this, and it is strongly recommended as the treatment of choice in general practice owing to its ease of administration and its freedom from serious untoward effects. A brief note on nicotinic acid and its probable pharmacodynamics is appended.
