These symptoms often furnish a basis for further consideration or further clinical observation. Many fragmentary provings have also been made, furnishing many of the symptoms recorded in this article.

The best consideration that Calcarea Sulphurica has ever received will be found in Boericke and Dewey's Materia Medica of the Tissue Remedies.
