Mycosis Fungoides. Presented by Dr. Fred Wise.
C. F., a woman, aged 42, from the Post-Graduate Clinic, had had a generalized eruption of one year's duration which consisted of markedly pruritic, discrete and confluent plaques over the entire skin. Scratch marks and papules were also present. The lesions on the hands were circinate. There was marked exudation and crusting associated with considerable infiltration. The lesions were all sharply demarcated from the normal skin. Histologically, the section presented only an exudative inflammatory reaction.The skin of the trunk presented a large number of elevated, indurated, dusky red plaques with a smooth surface, located chiefly on the flexor surfaces of the forearms and on the chest and back. On the face, the upper and lower extremities and the various separate areas of the abdomen, buttocks and thighs, were plaques of exudative and infiltrated eczema, which could not be distinguished from seborrheic eczema.
