Presented by Dr. Parkhurst. Mrs. G. B., aged 28, a housewife, had had the condition for nine years, the legs being affected, especially on their posterior aspects.

There was a large coin sized, ragged ulcer on the middle third of the calf of each leg. At various times, different local applications, roentgen rays, ultraviolet rays, rest in bed, and cod liver oil internally had been used with more or less apparent benefit, but there were always occasional exacerbations, during which new, tender nodules appeared.
