The first American case of this interesting disorder was reported by Simpson1 in 1912.

Among those who have described recent cases of this disease are Gougerot and Meaux Saint-Marc,4 Swift,5 Hodara,6 Brault,7 Haslund,8 Jensen,9 Selenew,10 Sobotka,11 Williams,12 Lange,13 Gibbs,14 and Buschke and Michael.15 Additional cases reported before 1912 should be credited to Rost,16 Arning and Meyer Delius,17 and Robin and Fiessinger.18
