Bromoderma of the Right Arm at the Sites of Injections of Insulin. Presented by Dr. E. William Abramowitz.
Mrs. M. B., aged 57, of Russian-Jewish extraction, was discovered to have diabetes and admitted to Bellevue Hospital. During a stay of three weeks she received daily injections of insulin in both arms. Before this, some time in January of this year, she had taken a mixture of various salts of bromide for a nervous disturbance. The eruption began to appear as soon as injections of insulin were started, about three weeks ago. The lesions are quarter sized and consist of papulopustules with a crusted center. They are all located on the outer side of the right arm. Although similar injections had been made into the left arm, only a few pinhead-sized pustules are presented there. The bromide medication was discontinued about one week ago.
