Eruption Due to Bromide or Iodide? Presented by Dr. Saul S. Robinson.
T. R., a Hungarian housewife aged 48, has had a generalized eruption with involvement of the eyes for five years. She says that she has not used either iodides or bromides. She has taken solution of potassium arsenite for the past two years as this was the only medicine which gave her relief.
On the right forearm is a round, nickel-sized, elevated, well defined bullous lesion. On the upper and lower extremities and on the face and neck are erythematous and white areas of scarring and atrophy at the site of old bullous lesions. The provocative Wassermann test of the blood was negative. A blood culture made on March 27, 1933, and cultures of fluid from the bullae did not show pathogenic organisms. The patient was presented at a meeting of this society in January 1933.
