Sarcoid of Boeck. Presented by Dr. Marvin Bernard Goldstein, Youngstown, Ohio.
G. C., a white man aged 53, was first seen in September 1936, when he presented lesions on the face, the scalp, the nape and the outer part of the right arm. These lesions had been present for four years. There were no serologic changes, and the blood count disclosed nothing abnormal.The lesions are large round plaquelike scaly erythematous areas. In the early stage small nodules are present in the plaques. The nodules flatten, and the plaques clear in the center. The lesions are pruritic at first.The patient has been treated with solution of potassium arsenite, roentgen radiation, bismuth subsalicylate and neoarsphenamine. Endothermy has been used in a few lesions.This case is presented for therapeutic suggestions.
