Mycosis Fungoides, Presented by Dr. McCafferty.
M. J. R., a white man, aged 41, an automobile mechanic, from the Polyclinic Hospital, was seen on May 6, 1929. At that time he complained of lumps in the skin and a swelling of the penis, which had been present for one month. He presented rounded and oval shaped, painless tumors confined principally to the thighs. They ranged in size from that of a split pea to that of a small fist, were purplish red, moderately firm and had no tendency to break down. They were elevated above the level of the skin as much as 15 cm. The penis, especially the glans, was red, swollen and indurated. There was a subcutaneous, slightly painful tumor mass at the lateral aspect of the right forearm. The Wassermann test was made and blood count taken, but the report had not been obtained.
