Lesions of the skin described under the general term lymphoblastoma by Mallory have received considerable attention in recent years. Having come across a case of this type presenting some peculiar features, we venture to place it on record. We have, however, preferred to use the term reticulosis for this lesion rather than lymphoblastoma, for reasons discussed in the text.
REPORT OF CASE
S. R., aged 35 years, was admitted to the Mission Hospital at Narsapur, India, in August 1928, under the care of Dr. Clark. He complained of a swelling on the left side of the sternum. The swelling, 5 cm. in diameter, was slightly tender, without any ulceration. This was removed and sent to a laboratory and was diagnosed as lymphosarcoma. We tried to obtain the slide, but unfortunately it was not available. Later, he had some radium treatment at the General Hospital at Madras, India.
