DR. H. W. STELWAGON said that about a year ago he had seen a case that presented all the symptoms of sporotrichosis. After an injury to the finger, a small nodule developed, followed by a chain of subcutaneous nodules and abscesses along the line of the lymphatics. Clinically, the picture was typical of the four or five cases that were now on record in American literature. Unfortunately, however, the pathologist failed to corroborate the diagnosis by finding the organism, but the speaker said he was convinced that it was a typical example of sporotrichosis; recovery slowly and gradually ensued under the administration of potassium iodide.
