ErythemaPerstans?LupusErythematosusDisseminatusSubacutus? Presented by Dr.Oliver S. Ormsby.

A man, aged 33, presents a cutaneous disorder of ten years' duration. Most of this time the condition has been active in the summer and quiescent during the winter. At examination the eruption was present on the dorsa of the hands, over the shoulders and upper portion of the back and on the neck and the arms. Over the dorsal surfaces of the hands there were diffuse redness and scaling, but in all other areas circular and gyrate erythematous and scaling lesions were present. The circular lesions varied in extent from areas the size of a dime to those larger than a palm. The early lesion was a wheel-like macule which spread peripherally. Frequent coalescence produced a gyrate configuration. The lesions were bluish red and not infiltrated. Scaling occurred on the inner margin of the spreading peripheral ring.
