Xeroderma Pigmentosum. Presented by Dr. Kring.
A white boy, aged 5, was the only one in the family with any history of xeroderma pigmentosum. He had two half brothers who were well, as were also the parents. The patient was first seen by me on November 12, with a history of the lesions coming out first on the face at the age of 6 months and then gradually spreading down over the neck, chest and arms. There were also lesions on the scalp at that time. He had been seen by various physicians and had received various treatments without any improvement.Examination revealed that he was fairly well nourished, and about the general size of a child of his age. His mental condition seemed normal. The lesions were brownish, some black, and of various sizes and configurations; they extended down the chest, back, both arms and hands, but no telangiectasis
