Purpura Annularis Telangiectodes. Presented by Dr. Throne.
J. W. A., a man, white, aged 20, showed an irregular, telangiectatic condition, small angioma, annular lesions, atrophy, and pigmentation on both ankles. The duration of the condition was several years. The atrophy had been present about two years. There was nothing important in the patient's previous history, except that he had "weak ankles." The family history was negative.
Mycosis Fungoides. Presented by Dr. Gauvain.
M. B., a woman, aged 42, married, had had an eruption since August, 1926, which began as a red spot the size of a quarter. The spot increased rapidly in size, and new ones developed for a period of four or five months. The condition had been diagnosed as "ringworm" and as "psoriasis." On March 15, at the Long Island College Hospital, the patient presented eczematous-looking patches, acutely inflamed, which improved under soothing applications. Pruritus was marked.
