Leukoderma, Treated with Gold and Sodium Thiosulphate. Presented by Dr. C. S. Wright.
H. A., a white man, aged 38, in December, 1932, began to have a dry, scaly, eczematoid eruption on each side of the face. He was given five roentgen treatments in Scranton, Pa. Scales from the face were examined by a commercial laboratory, and it was claimed that mycelia and spores were found. In May, 1933, he consulted Dr. Schamberg, at which time he presented an extensive crusting of the face and neck. The patient did not seek a physician again until August, 1933, at which time the eruption had entirely healed, and he presented an extensive leukoderma of the face and neck, with patches of total depigmentation surrounded by what appeared to be hyperpigmentation. He was given six injections of gold and sodium thiosulphate and in two months the patches of depigmentation on the face
