The clinical and anatomical features of this peculiar skin disease are fully described in any modern text-book of dermatology, so that it is not necessary to give any lengthy description of them here. In brief, the disease consists of single or multiple focal lesions of the skin characterized by the formation of elevated, indurated areas, which ulcerate and eventually cicatrize. They have considerable resemblance to certain forms of cutaneous tuberculosis and syphilis.
