A Case for Diagnosis. Presented by Dr. Valade.  Mrs. C. T., a negress, aged 56, presented a generalized eruption of bullae in various stages, the condition being of two years' duration. There had been some lesions in the mouth.

There was an improvement in the condition, followed by a recurrence of the lesions in March, 1928, and Nikolsky's sign was present. A biopsy report was included.
