Autopsy Findings in Lichen Myxedematosus

Autopsy Findings in Lichen Myxedematosus Abstract The case herein reported was diagnosed as lichen myxedematosus from biopsy in 1950, by Drs. Montgomery and Underwood, and was included in a series of cases reported by them.1 The patient, a Negro man, was 35 years of age at that time. He was first seen by Dr. M. A. Forbes and in subsequent years was seen by several other dermatologists.* At no time through these years was there a regression of the generalized squamous eruption. Frequent notations on the hospital and outpatient charts of the patient by dermatologists noted the striking resemblance, clinically, to generalized discoid lupus erythematosus. About three years prior to his death, the family and his attending physicians first noted the onset of what was to be a progressive mental deterioration. This psychosis assumed severe proportions of an organic type, and he was finally admitted to the Austin State Hospital. Although References 1. Drs.

Abstract

Abstract The case herein reported was diagnosed as lichen myxedematosus from biopsy in 1950, by Drs. Montgomery and Underwood, and was included in a series of cases reported by them.1 The patient, a Negro man, was 35 years of age at that time. He was first seen by Dr. M. A. Forbes and in subsequent years was seen by several other dermatologists.* At no time through these years was there a regression of the generalized squamous eruption. Frequent notations on the hospital and outpatient charts of the patient by dermatologists noted the striking resemblance, clinically, to generalized discoid lupus erythematosus. About three years prior to his death, the family and his attending physicians first noted the onset of what was to be a progressive mental deterioration. This psychosis assumed severe proportions of an organic type, and he was finally admitted to the Austin State Hospital. Although References 1. Drs.
