Multiple Chancres. Presented by Dr. Parounagian.
H. F., aged 30, was admitted on Nov. 5, 1928, with a history of having had a chancre in 1921, at which time he had received four intravenous injections presumably of arsphenamine.Examination disclosed three gangrenous chancres, one at the meatus, one on the abdomen near the umbilicus and one near the crest of the ilium. Because of frequent sexual exposures it was impossible to determine the period of incubation. The patient was not certain about the duration of the genital lesion, though he was sure that the other two lesions had appeared after the genital sore. The Wassermann reaction was four plus. He had an inguinal bubo on the left side which had been opened. He also presented a papular eruption, most marked on the back.
