The patient is a coachman, æt, thirty-five, whose face is covered with red suppurating nodules and dermic abscesses.
Dr. FORDYCE considered it very unusual for an acne to appear at the age of thirty-five without having previously shown signs of the disease. It was a case of suppurative folliculitis, and it might be well to search for the demodex. The demodex was known to cause a suppurative inflammation in the dog and pig, and under favorable conditions might be pathogenic in man.
