History.—A F., aged 59, white, a bricklayer, was admitted to the clinic of the Johns Hopkins Hospital on Feb. 24, 1930. He complained of a disorder of the skin, the first signs of which he had noticed in the spring of 1928. There had never been a similar complaint in any member of his family. His paternal uncle, a sister and his mother died of tuberculosis, and he had been exposed to infection from his mother for a number of years. So far as his own past history was concerned, he had had measles and whooping cough in childhood and typhoid fever at the age of 25. At the age of 20 he had a urethral discharge, which cleared up in two weeks by the use of injections. For several years he had been deaf in the left ear, and the last of his teeth were extracted some time
