A Case for Diagnosis. Presented by Dr. Gammel.  M. B., a German laborer, aged 40, who said that he had not had any venereal disease, presented a paper-like thickening and bluish discoloration of almost the entire glans penis, together with several small areas of telangiectasia. The condition was said to have begun on the prepuce two years previously. The preputial area had improved, leaving the glans involved. There had been no irradiation of any kind.

DISCUSSION  Dr. Cole: I have seen about six such cases and feel that the condition corresponds to kraurosis vulvae and may possibly lead to malignancy. I would treat it by electrodesiccation.Dr. Netherton: One part of the lesion resembled an early basal cell epithelioma.

A Case for Diagnosis. Presented by Dr. Cole and Dr. Driver.  J. R., a man, aged 50, presented a generalized eruption which was said to have started three years before presentation
