Lymphocytic Infiltration of the Skin. Presented by Dr. Ben A. Newman and (by invitation) by Dr. Fred F. Feldman.

H. M., a white woman aged 41, was first seen in January, 1953, because of a pruritic eruption consisting only of a few small, erythematous papules on the extensor surface of the forearms which had been present for several months. During hospitalization for a thyroidectomy, the eruption subsided spontaneously. She was seen again on Nov. 10, 1953, with an eruption on the extensor surface of both forearms, and there has been exacerbations and remissions of the eruption since she was last seen. On Nov. 20, 1953, the lesions on the elbows had involuted, but new lesions appeared on the knees. These had disappeared leaving residual, erythematous macules.

There are some scattered, discrete, reddish-brown papules of firm consistency, varying from 4 to 7 mm. in diameter, on the extensor surface
