WITH A REPORT ON THE HISTOPATHOLOGY.
BY JOHN A FORDYCE, M.D.,
The first patient who presented the peculiar eruption which I wish briefly to describe, entered the New York Skin and Cancer Hospital in January, 1899. She was twenty-eight years old, unmarried, and born in Russia. The eruption was mainly confined to the axillary region, had existed for a year or more and caused no little distress. The itching was intense and of a paroxysmal character, robbing her of sleep and impairing her general health in a marked degree.
