Last June I reported to the Spokane County Medical Society a case of an unusual keratosis attending gonorrhea, which I now report as a typical case of blennorrhagic keratosis. Except for the report of this disease by Simpson,1 I should not be able at this time to classify this case properly. It is, I believe, the second case reported in America, and the twenty-second case recorded in medical literature. It is of special interest because it is probably a gonorrheal skin disease.
—The patient, W. B., aged 26, American of Welsh parentage, with negative family history, and unimportant personal history except for two attacks of gonorrhea, came under my care May 9, 1912, suffering with an acute gonorrhea and with horny-like, papular eruptions on the soles of both feet. His gonorrheal infection began two weeks previous to my seeing him, and had been running rather a mild course
