A man, aged 56, was presented before this Society on June 13, 1944 (Arch. Dermat. & Syph. 53:64, 1946). Prior to that he had been studied by Dr. George C.

The patient was referred to Dr. Ian Macdonald for x-ray treatment. From 1944 to the present time the indurated plaques on his scalp responded promptly to the treatment but always recurred. The total dose administered during these 13 years was 25,200 r at 130 or 160 kv. and a half-value layer of 0.16 mm. Cu. The last series of treatment in 1957 was given at a H. V. L. of 0.23
