If it is Brown Jelly disease then you can take it out and iodine dip it, but I haven't seen any coral live once brown jelly sets in.

You can google Brown Jelly disease and get some info on it

here is a thread with some pictures so you can compare it to your coral to see if it is the same thing or not.

to give you hope, I have recovered a coral from brown jelly before. Never seen a SPS get it but eh. Gently remove the brown tissue and rinse with tank water then dip it in lugols at three times the recommended dose in a small container. I would often drip the iodine straight on to the damaged tissue out of the water then let it sit in a dip. Be aggressive with your treatments. Also dose a water soluble antibiotic at that point. Place coral back in tank and of course do not put the treated water back in the tank. Don't be stingy on using a lot of water as well. I did it everyday for a week to save my gonipora that had BJD.
