Before Finnerud1 called attention to "ulcus vulvae acutum" no case occurring in this country had been reported as such. Shortly following this paper Rostenberg2 published a report of a case which is the first in the American literature. This disease apparently is common in continental Europe, as Lipschütz has compiled fifty-one cases. Five other cases have been observed in England by McDonagh.3
The following case is worthy of report as the second in the American literature.
REPORT OF CASE
Mrs. H. A., aged 52, consulted me on account of a ringworm infection of the genitocrural region. During the examination the mucosa of the vulva and the skin of the perianal region were noted to be normal, and there were no symptoms referable to these parts. The patient's general health was good, and there was no history of infection of the genital tract at any time.Two days
