Circinate Sarcoid (Boeck's). Presented by Dr. Abraham Walzer.
A. H., a clerk selling fruit, is presented from the dermatologic clinic of the Jewish Hospital of Brooklyn. There is no history of tuberculosis or diabetes in the patient or in his family. He had a penile chancre for which he was treated by intramuscular and intravenous injections. The Wassermann reaction of his blood was strongly positive. After being treated for a number of months he was told that the Wassermann reaction had become negative, and treatment was discontinued. About six years later, or seventeen years ago, he married, and at that time the Wassermann reaction of his blood was said to be negative. His wife subsequently gave birth to three children, their ages at present being 15, 14 and 11 years. The Wassermann reactions of their blood, as well as that of his wife's blood, have always been negative.
