Rosacea-Like Tuberculid of Lewandowsky? Presented by Dr. Marion B. Sulzberger for Dr. Adolph Rostenberg Jr.
J. P., a man aged 29, first came to the clinic of the New York Post-Graduate Medical School and Hospital on Dec. 31, 1931. At that time the right cheek presented a well defined violet-red area about 1.5 by 2 cm. which was covered with fine adherent scales. There were telangiectasia and a few crusted papules. A similar lesion covered most of the forehead. The patient stated that these lesions had been present for one and one-half years and that local therapy plus irradiation with 15 quarter-unit doses (75 roentgens) of roentgen rays had proved ineffectual. The past history is irrelevant except for the fact that six years ago the patient was operated on for an anal fistula.Quantitative intradermal injections of old tuberculin revealed a general hypersensitivity. A Moro test and a patch test
