Tuberculous of the Skin. Presented by Dr. J. E. Rauschkolb, Cleveland.
W. M., a Negro, aged 26, from the service of Dr. H. N. Cole and Dr. J. R. Driver, presented an eruption of the face, head, neck and base of the penis, associated with pruritus of three and one-half years' duration. He said that in the late winter of 1926, itching white "bumps" appeared at the right angle of the mouth, which became scaly in a few weeks. This was accompanied by swelling at the right mandibular ramus, which later disappeared. The lesions did not spread by continuity and appeared in order around the alae of the nose, over the cheeks, laterally about the ears, around the back of the neck encircling the hair line, the scalp, about the eyes, the pubic area and the shaft of the penis, requiring one and one-half years to assume this distribution.
