A Case for Diagnosis (Dermatitis Seborrheica?). Presented by Dr. John C. Graham.  E. P., aged 55, married, a bank clerk, had a condition of the skin which had been present for fifteen years. Four months previous to presentation, an abscessed tooth developed, and since that time the lesions of the skin had been very much more extensive. The patient had had numerous food tests, and had been found to be sensitive to poultry of various kinds. He was desensitized to these by graded inoculations. He presented a sharply outlined, slightly elevated, erythematous eruption, beginning at the collar line, extending laterally to the axillary line and covering the whole of the chest, abdomen and groins, the anterior portion of the thighs and the lower part of the legs to the ankles. The back and arms were free from lesions. He had a few lesions on the face and on the eyebrows.
