Read before the Twenty-ninth Annual Meeting of the American Dermatological Association, New York, December 28, 29, 30, 1905.

THE patient, a gentleman, fifty-five years old, became aware last July of abnormal sensations in the skin of the outer lower two-thirds of the right thigh after an ordinary walk of four or five miles, whilst at Bar Harbor, Maine. He was accustomed to take such exercise. The feelings were of a tingling nature. On examination there seemed to be a tenseness, as he described it, of the area mentioned, and the touch of a single finger seemed to be felt over an unusually large surface.
