Abstract

Poikiloderma Vasculare Atrophicans. Presented by Dr. Abramowitz.  I. M., a man, aged 30, born in Russia, reported to the Skin Clinic of the New York Post-Graduate Hospital on July 11, 1928. Seven years previously he had noticed an eruption in the popliteal spaces. In a year or two it had involved the inner aspects of both thighs. On examination, large, well defined, dark, reddish-brown, pigmented patches were found in the popliteal spaces and on the inner aspects of the thighs, which extended from the middle of the thighs to the middle of the legs. There were telangiectatic and hemorrhagic spots in the lesions and atrophy. A biopsy taken at the Vanderbilt Clinic revealed poikiloderma.
