ARSENICAL HYPERKERATOSES. Presented by Dr. H. N. Cole.
A man, aged 22 years, with a history of epilepsy of nine or ten years' duration, four years ago had first noticed papular lesions on the palms and soles that were becoming keratosed. At that time he was told that arsenic had not been used, and that he had been given only sodium bromid.Two or three of the lesions had been treated experimentally with radium, which caused temporary disappearance. The patient then consulted another physician who administered roentgen therapy; he subsequently returned to Dr. Cole with a more acute case of keratosis. He had received no arsenic since first seen but had formerly received arsenic with sodium bromid over a long period of time. Hyperpigmentation was present under the arms.
