Angiolymphoid Hyperplasia With Eosinophilia. Presented by Stephen Schwartz, MD (by invitation).
For 12 years, multiple pruritic nodules have been present on the scalp of a 57-year-old white woman. Initially, a biopsy specimen was diagnosed as chronic dermatitis, and x-ray therapy with 400 roent1-cm given at that time was ineffective. A 1-cm satellite nodule was excised two months ago. New papules are appearing. Skull roentgenograms have been reported to be normal. There is no similar history in the family. Other medical problems have been reflux esophagitis and hiatal hernia, and lipoprotein electrophoresis reveals findings of a hyperlipemia, type II b. The posterior scalp reveals multiple dermal nodules, clustered together and measuring from 5 mm to 3 cm, some of them superficially
