Cutaneous Calcinosis. Presented by Dr. Adolph Rostenberg.
I. Y., a boy aged 6½ years, is the second child of healthy parents. He had scarlet fever at the age of 3 years. Six months later he suffered from rheumatic fever, involvement of the joints of the hands and the feet and a cardiac lesion. He was bedridden for about four months, and when he recovered from the severe illness he had a contracted left hip, which gradually yielded to treatment. The first nodules appeared on the arms about two years ago.The patient presents a symmetrical eruption which involves both elbows, the volar aspects of the arms and the anterior surfaces of the legs. It consists of nodules which are arranged in beadlike fashion and range in size from that of a pea to that of a hazelnut. They are both discrete and confluent; they form large plaques on the hips.
