A Case for Diagnosis (Lichen Nitidus?). Presented by Dr. Rollin H. Stevens.  This Hungarian youth, aged 23, presents an eruption on the left breast. It is pigmented, yellowish brown, of the color of chamois skin and situated lateral to the nipple. In some places it is composed of small, flat, shiny lesions; in other parts it is follicular with plugs. There are no symptoms associated with the eruption.When I first saw the patient on July 2, 1934, the disorder presented the appearance heretofore described. At present one can scarcely see any follicular plugs, and even the flat, shiny, pinhead-sized papules have nearly disappeared.The patient has had six mild roentgen treatments between July 2 and Oct. 2, 1934.

DISCUSSION  Dr. Harther L. Keim: If I could disregard the history, I should much prefer to class this eruption as a nevus.Dr. Howard J. Parkhurst: I agree with Dr. Keim,
