 In the discussion of the case the opinion was general that it was to be regarded rather as a bullous urticaria, since plain urticarial lesions were also present on various portions of the body. Dr. PAROUNAGIAN believed, since all the bullous lesions were on the elbow and thighs, some external irritant was the cause of the urticarial efflorescences. Dr. GOTTHEIL recognized the case as one that had been under his care at Lebanon Hospital for a general and violent seborrhœal eczema and commented on the absolute worthlessness of the histories in the great majority of these cases.
