Chancre of the Neck. Presented by Dr. Parounagian.
An Italian, aged 18, a room steward on a steamer, was referred to the Bellevue Clinic on October 24, 1927, and presented at that time a circular, elevated lesion on the right side of the neck, on the anterior aspect. The duration of the lesion was said to be about three weeks. The glands on both sides of the neck were markedly swollen. The mode of infection could not be definitely explained, as the patient did not speak English.

The patient was placed under treatment which modified the lesions somewhat.
