Lupus Erythematosus? Presented by Dr. Andrew P. Biddle.
M. D., aged 69, a widow, a housewife, presents a group of circular yellowish macules the size of a coin on the forehead and a few bluish maculopapules on the fingers of the right hand. The lesions on the forehead show some atrophy. The lesions are of two years' duration and are resistant to treatment. There have been no subjective symptoms. There is an associated seborrheic dermatitis of the scalp.
