A Case for Diagnosis. Presented by Dr. Ormsby.
A boy, aged 19, had a disorder of one year's duration. The eruption began on the neck, and spread from there over the trunk and upper extremities. No subjective symptoms had been present. The eruption has not been affected by treatment or by other agencies.Examination showed an eruption on the back, on the sides of the neck, on the arms, on both sides of the chest and on the abdomen, consisting of follicular, reddish-brown papules the size of a pinhead. Some of the lesions showed a central hair, and all were covered by scales or by slightly greasy crusts. On the neck, confluence of the papules had occurred to produce small patches. Much greasy scaling was present in the scalp. There were no abnormalities aside from those of the skin.
Dr. Wile: I think it is difficult in this case
