Erythema Induratum Treated with Gold. Presented by Dr. Bechet.
A. B., a young girl, said that the eruption had been present for four years. The lesions were characteristic, severe and rather widely distributed on both calves. She had not received any local treatment. Between December 10 and January 21, she was given seven injections of gold and sodium thiosulphate. The lesions have entirely disappeared, leaving only stains.
Lupus Erythematosus (?) Resistant to Treatment with a Gold Compound. Presented by Dr. Wise.
Mrs. S. T., aged 34, married, presented a lesion of six years' duration. The eruption consisted of a slight elevated plaque on the right cheek, near the ala of the nose; it measured about 2 by 1½ inches (5 by 3.7 cm.) in diameter, and was roughly oval in shape. The lesion was partly scarred and depressed, as a result of treatment received in Sweden, consisting of refrigeration and radium.
