This excellent monograph is devoted to a survey of the literature plus a personal study of thirty-five cases observed at Pautrier's clinic. The syndrome described is found in young women suffering from venous stasis and is characterized by four cardinal symptoms; its location in the lower third of both legs, a bluish violet tint often mixed with red, a lowered temperature over the affected parts and a diffuse characteristic infiltration. Keratosis pilaris of the limbs is usually present. This disorder is distinguished from Bazin's erythema induratum by an absence of circumscribed nodosites. Almost all of Ullmo's patients presented thyroid and ovarian insufficiency. In addition to treatment directed against those conditions the ultraviolet rays and especially x-rays over Scarpa's triangles have been valuable according to Gouin and Ullmo.
