Sarcoid. Presented by Dr. M. B. Parounagian.
G. I., a man, aged 30, from the Bellevue Hospital Clinic, presented at the April, 1930, meeting of this society, had a lesion similar to the present one on the right cheek, the diagnosis of which was unanimously accepted as sarcoid. The lesion had disappeared after two small doses of neoarsphenamine and after painting the lesion with a 5 per cent solution of chrysarobin in chloroform.
The new lesion was of two months' duration; it was dull red, slightly elevated and kidney-shaped, and was located on the left malar prominence. The Wassermann reaction was negative, as before.
Dr. B. F. Ochs: It is rather interesting to know that once in a while sarcoid will disappear under antisyphilitic treatment.
Dr.George M. MacKee : This case clinically is sarcoid, but syphilis ought to be ruled out before a definite diagnosis is made.
