By presentation of certain facts developed in the study of two cases of papulonecrotic tuberculid, together with some corroborative evidence foreign to the case reports, I propose to support a theory antagonistic to tuberculosis as the etiology of this dermatosis in all instances. Striking similarity of gross pathology in these two cases forms the basis for my thesis.

ATTITUDE OF AUTHORS REGARDING THE ETIOLOGY OF TUBERCULID  It is interesting to review the literature on this subject, contrasting views of different authors bearing on the question of etiology. Except in recognition of the dermatosis, there seems to be nothing on which we can agree. In the table, which was prepared by Dr. Lester Hollander, an attempt is made to show the association of papulonecrotic tuberculid with tuberculosis through case study, either by hereditary predisposition, a positive tuberculous family history or demonstration of tuberculosis in the patient studied, and also to give
