Abstract

The subject, which this communication embraces, is one frequently discussed, but the case reported shows such varied and interesting pathologic manifestations that it seems well worth the effort to compile detailed data on it.

REPORT OF A CASE 

History.—  R. S., aged 48, colored, a cook and fish peddler, living at Ford City, Pa., was referred to the dermatologic department of the Passavant Hospital of Pittsburgh, Oct. 6, 1920, on account of extensive bilateral ulcerations on his neck.He gave the following history: About a year ago he noticed a few deepseated lesions on his face and neck, continuously enlarging. Within four weeks most of these lesions broke down and formed ulcers, which remained in the same condition for a considerable period until the patient's physician gave him seven intravenous injections of arsphenamin; a slight improvement was noted, and the ulcers healed partially except at the nape of the neck
