Medical Definition of Silvol

1. A complex prepared by the reaction of silver oxide with either gelatin or serum albumin. Black shiny crystals liberate silver and it was formerly widely used as a topical anti-infective on mucous membranes. Contains from 19 to 25% silver, only a small fraction of which is ionizable. Can produce black or brown pigmentation due to deposition of reduced silver in the tissues. Synonym: argyrol, silvol. (05 Mar 2000)
