The prolonged use of self-administered corticotrophin in the form of 'CMC ACTH' (Crookes) or 'Synacthen Depot' (Ciba) has been considered in twenty-seven patients with severe subactute of chronic eczema. Complications were not troublesome and the therapeutic response was good. Many of the patients were able to control their disease fully without the effort and discomfort of additional local treatment and patients' acceptance of the treatment was high.
