Urticaria Pigmentosa In An Adult. Presented by Dr. Howard Fox.
M. G., aged 46, a physician, had suffered from the eruption for the past seven years. It consisted of discrete reddish and reddish-brown macules of split pea size; it was somewhat sparse in amount but was widely distributed and affected the trunk and extremities. The greatest number of lesions were located on the flexors of the arms and forearms and on the internal aspect of the thighs. Friction of the macules caused some increase in redness but no wheals. There were no subjective symptoms except slight "soreness in the summer." There was a very mild associated dermographism. The patient was a large, robust man, apparently in excellent health.
