Abstract A SKIN lesion which followed the application of an electrode for electronystagmography is shown in the Figure, (left). The occurrence of this blemish in two of more than 600 cases is of considerable concern to us, and possibly to all otolaryngologists because we have no reason to believe our methods of electrode applications are in anyway different than others. Yet, such lesions have not been reported before. This paper describes these lesions and explores some possible causes. Report of Cases Case 1.—A 43-year-old psychiatrist had an electronystagmogram as part of a work-up for a unilateral sensorineural hearing loss. The patient and the technician who performed the test reported nothing unusual. Approximately four days later the patient noted raised, plaque-like red skin lesions bilaterally in the region of the electrode application. These lesions did not enlarge during the next week, however, several crusts were removed from their surfaces. By the third References 1. Anderson, W.A.D.: Pathology , ed 3, St. Louis: C. V.
