Abstract

The following report is deemed worthy of presentation on occount of the rarity of the disease and the obscurity that has until recently surrounded it. About 1865 the disease was described by Milton under the name "lupoid sycosis." This author says "I have seen in some rare cases (of sycosis) a slow superficial form of ulceration beginning with minute tubercles and attacking the hair follicles causing falling of the hair and slight though indelible cicatrices, a disorder which seems to me to be nothing more than lupus non-exedens." Unna, in 1889, described a disease which he terms ulerythema sykosiforme and reports a case in considerable detail. By ulerythema the latter writer means a pathologic process which goes on to the formation of atrophic scars without intermediate suppuration or ulceration; in other words, through the resorption of the cellular infiltrate. We append a full record of the case reported by Unna
