A 46-year-old woman with facial sebaceous adenomata, neck tabs, periungual fibromata, abnormalities of the fundus oculi died with epileptic convulsions 16 hours after arteriography. At autopsy the pituitary gland was found considerably enlarged, a liposarcomatosis of both kidneys and miliary tuberculosis of lungs and liver were found.

Randazzo discusses the medical, surgical, endocrinologic, ophthamologic, neuropsychiatric, and dermatologic literature on the subject. The monograph will be of value to anyone investigating this polyform, etiologically unknown, genoectodermatosis.
