Mycosis Fungoides. Presented by Dr. H. E. Michelson, Minneapolis.
A. C., a white farmer aged 68, was first seen in the University Clinics in March 1935, at which time he presented a generalized eruption consisting of cutaneous nodules and plaques varying in size from 1 to 3 cm. in diameter. The eruption was brown with shades of blue to red, and some of the lesions on the thighs were hemorrhagic. The face was free of eruption. There was a generalized, firm, painless adenopathy. Pruritus was present. There were no constitutional symptoms.The lesions disappeared with roentgen therapy and did not recur for about a year. Subsequently the lesions reappeared on the lower extremities and again responded to roentgen therapy. During the last two months indurated weeping plaques developed on the neck and on the upper part of the thorax, with eczematous lesions on the legs and groin and generalized lymphadenopathy.
