Acne Agminata. Presented by Dr. Ernest K. Stratton.
H. W., a woman aged 47, consulted me in June of this year regarding a chronic inflammatory papulopustular eruption of five months' duration, involving the greater part of the face. There was a tendency to grouping about the chin, malar prominences and supra-orbital ridges. The lesions were purplish; many of them were discrete and capped with yellowish pustules.
In November 1933 the patient had an acute attack of bronchial asthma and received many intravenous injections of a combination of epinephrine and pituitary gland used in bronchial asthma. She had taken iodides by mouth over a year ago. Many years ago she underwent a bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy on account of a tuberculous condition.
Roentgen examination of the chest showed evidence of a past infection about the roots of the lungs but no evidence of active pulmonary tuberculosis. Direct smears were negative for acid-fast organisms
