Lymphogranuloma Inguinale: Spontaneous Recovery. Presented by Dr. H. F. De Wolf.
E. M., an Indian woman, aged 27, was admitted to the service of Dr. Cole and Dr. Driver at the City Hospital, Cleveland, on March 14, 1933, because of a pyogenic infection of the right thumb with lymphangitis. Healing was uneventful. The patient gave a history of having been operated on in the same hospital in 1928 for a lesion in the left groin which was thought to be a strangulated femoral hernia. At the time of operation infected lymph nodes were found, and healing was slow. The Wassermann and Kline tests of the blood at this time were positive. Examination of the spinal fluid yielded negative results. The Wassermann test of the blood was negative in 1928. Because of the previous history, Frei tests were performed and were found to be strongly positive with three different antigens.A
