A means of differentiating between transudates and inflammatory exudates into a test-tube containing 1 drop of a 50 per cent solution of acetic acid in 50 c.c. distilled water, one drop of the fluid is let fall; a bluish white ring is formed which broadens out and presents opalescent striations when the fluid is of inflammatory origin; a pure dropsical transudate gives no reaction.
