Leiomyoma Cutis. Presented by Dr. Clark W. Finnerud.
R. T. A., a woman aged 29, complained of a painful eruption of the extremities of twenty years' duration. She stated that the areas were sensitive to changes of temperature and to the slightest pressure. She further stated that she was not interested in the eradication of the eruption but must do something to accomplish relief from pain which at times was excruciating and often prevented her from getting sufficient sleep. The patient was shown before the Chicago Dermatological Society several years previously by Dr. David V. Omens (Arch. Dermat. & Syph.43:1071, 1941). Histologic sections were taken at that time.
The examination reveals extensive distribution of large groups of round and oval reddish brown firm nodules from the size of a pea to that of a bean, the involvement being chiefly of the extensor surface of the arms and forearms,
