Sarcoidosis. Presented by Dr. H. E. Michelson, Minneapolis.
A. S., a white woman aged 54, stated that an eruption on her skin appeared in January 1942, on her arms, shoulders and back. When they had once appeared the lesions would never disappear completely, although they changed their appearance somewhat, becoming flatter and pigmented. The patient's nose had been somewhat red for several years, but at the time the cutaneous eruption appeared the nose became darker, inflamed and swollen. She noticed that the swelling and inflammation tended to be worse in the morning. The patient had an eruption on her legs in July 1941, lasting for six weeks. During this period she had a series of small papules on the legs, which increased in size and became bullous. These lesions spread over the lower extremities in the course of six weeks. They disappeared spontaneously, leaving a few pigmented scattered areas. About
