Acute Infectious Eczematoid Dermatitis. Presented by Dr. Guy and Dr. Jacob.
P. S., a man, aged 33, presented a chronic dermatitis involving the entire area of both legs. The condition began about two years prior to presentation as an epidermophytosis involving the feet and ankles. Since then it had spread slowly as an erythema and satellite lesions consisting of follicular pustules which were also scattered throughout the main body of the inflammation. Various kinds of treatment had been used with varying success. The patient was presented for suggestions as to treatment.
Dr. Phillips: I agree with the diagnosis. A nonspecific milk preparation is sometimes used intramuscularly and also by direct injection into the lesion, blocking off small areas at a time.Dr. Crawford: I agree with the diagnosis and endorse the use of boric acid locally.Dr. Hollander: I wish to call attention to a definite demarcation and localization
