Acrodermatitis chronica atrophicans is a comparatively new dermatologic problem of great theoretical and practical interest. In spite of a steadily increasing number of observations it is still a condition sufficiently rare to justify the publication of a new example. The case to be reported is one of such exquisite and clear-cut type and possesses so many clinical features of interest as to furnish an additional incentive for placing it on record.
The case was referred to the writer by Dr. Herman Sugarman of this city.
