Tuberculosis Verrucosa Cutis Resembling Dermatitis. Presented by Dr. Chambers for Dr. Stokes.
R. B., aged 15, white, presented a subacute dermatitis involving the anterior surface of the left tibia. The lesions were not so prominent nor as typical as they were a few weeks before presentation, for at that time definite pustulation was present, and the lesion was distinctly verrucous. The eruption would suggest a simple subacute dermatitis. The lesion had been treated and observed for almost a year as a simple patch of dermatitis. Its chronic tendency and the presence of some of the features of tuberculosis verrucosa cutis prompted the removal of tissue from the lesion. The histologic report from the Pepper Laboratory was tuberculosis of the skin. The lesion had undergone involution following treatment.
Dr. Strauss: I do not believe that this is a patch of tuberculosis verrucosa cutis. At least, there is not any evidence
