Erythroplasia of Queyrat?*
I. H., a Negro aged 38, states that he has had gonorrheal urethritis since 1915. In 1928 he had an acute retention, which was relieved by catheterization. In 1931 he underwent a suprapubic cystotomy. Since 1929, the prepuce and the glans penis have been inflamed.
Before that the patient had no penile lesions of any sort, and he has had no generalized eruption. In 1925 he had a bubo on the right side, which was incised and drained. No history could be obtained of intramuscular or intravenous therapy of any sort and there is no history of syphilis. At various times the patient has undergone incision and drainage for perineal and scrotal abscesses, and in 1932 he had a prostatic abscess.
The cartilaginous-like swelling and redness have remained about the same for the past three years; the inflammation of the glans seems to improve at times. The
