Granuloma of Undetermined Origin. Presented by Dr. Eller for Dr. Wise.
H. F., an engineer, married, aged 30, presented on both inguinal regions, granulomatous masses which extended from the iliac crest to the perineum posterior to the scrotum, which were raised on the surface of the skin about 3 inches. The growth was fungoid and moist and had a fetid odor. There was no pain. The tumors began to grow about ten years previously, one appearing on the left groin. This was removed with an adjacent gland, and a microscopic study revealed a granuloma of undetermined origin. Three years later hypertrophic lesions resembling dermatitis vegetans appeared on both groins and grew to the present size. The skin over the hips became bound down and sclerotic. Stricture of the rectum had been present for about two years. A microscopic study revealed the same type of changes as those from the groin
