Abstract

PHILADELPHIA DERMATOLOGICAL SOCIETY 

Regular Monthly Meeting, May, 1924. 

F. D. Weidman, M.D., Presiding 

A Case for Diagnosis. Presented by Dr. Hirschler.  E. R., a boy, aged 5, white, was the third in a family of seven children. His personal and family history were negative. The present skin condition began four weeks before he was admitted to the Woman's Hospital on May 6, 1924. The patient had been residing with his family in Savannah, Ga., for one year, and had returned about three months before the eruption began. The mother had noted on the legs, just above the tops of his shoes, what appeared to be a slight thickening of the skin, with tiny "blackheads in the pores." Later the elbows and the forearms were inflamed; from then on, the child became progressively worse. He complained of fatigue; the mother thought that he had been having a slight fever.
