Mrs. C., aged 35, first noticed the lesion in July 1935. She had been treated for infection of the gallbladder by drainage, and several roentgenograms of the gallbladder had been taken in the dorsal position. When she was seen by Dr. Max Wolf, in July 1935, the lesion was superficial, exhibiting a violaceous, almost purple, center and a dull red periphery. A few days later it became raw and denuded. It healed over in about September 1935. Three weeks later it became dry, wrinkled and hyperpigmented in the center and depigmented at the periphery.

Treatment consisted of application of mild ointment and ultraviolet irradiation. The
