Case of Rhinoscleroma

Arch Dermatol. 1993;129(4):536. doi:10.1001/archderm.1993.01680250154032

Dr. Jackson presented the case mentioned at the last meeting.

Dr. Allen said he had expected to present this patient over a year ago, and when she failed to appear at the meeting had shown a photograph of the case, kindly taken by Dr. Piffard. At that time attempts to produce cultures had been made in conjunction with Dr. Lustgarten, but they had failed.

Dr. Lustgarten stated that he had not been successful in getting any cultures from this case. While in Vienna he had always succeeded with ease. He therefore was somewhat doubtful that this really was a case of rhinoscleroma.

Dr. Bronson said that this was the first case of this disease which he had ever seen in America.

Dr. Jackson said that he was very sorry he could not get any specimens from the patient, who objected to all interference.
