Dermatitis Factitia. Presented by Dr. George M. Lewis. 

A Case for Diagnosis (Sporotrichosis?). Secondary Syphilis (Treated). Presented by Dr. Fred Wise for Dr. George C. Andrews.  G. V., a woman aged 20, is presented with an eruption in the left epitrochlear area, left axilla and the volar surface of the left wrist, of seven months' duration. Secondary syphilis was diagnosed nine months ago, because of a generalized eruption together with a positive Wassermann reaction of the blood. She received four injections of oxophenarsine hydrochloride intravenously, 2,000,000 units of penicillin intramuscularly and three injections of bismuth compound before coming to me in May 1945. While in Florida, two months previously, a papule had developed on the volar surface of the left wrist, which she believed to be the result of an insect bite. About six weeks later she noticed tender swellings in the left epitrochlear area and in the left axilla.
