On first appearance it was no larger than a millet seed. It has grown to the present size in the past three weeks.Physical examination revealed a healthy-appearing person except for the presence of the tumor on the chin. There was no regional adenopathy and no palpable enlargement of the spleen and liver.On the left side of the chin there is a reddish, round and rather firm tumor, the size of a hazelnut. There are no enlarged submental glands. The Wassermann reaction was negative.The histologic diagnosis reported by Drs. Klemperer, Otani and Peck was mycosis fungoides.
