JUVENILE ACRODYNIA: A BRIEF REVIEW OF THE DISEASE AND REPORT OF A CASE SEEN IN NEW YORK

JUVENILE ACRODYNIA: A BRIEF REVIEW OF THE DISEASE AND REPORT OF A CASE SEEN IN NEW YORK Abstract Juvenile acrodynia is found in many parts of the world, and has frequently been reported from sections of the United States other than New York City. To date there is but one report of a patient with juvenile acrodynia from this city. The wide publication of a first report usually brings a train of reports of other cases not previously recognized. We believe that there must be many other cases unrecognized and undiagnosed. Since the symptoms are distinctive, there need be no excuse for failure to detect acrodynia. Once seen, the disease leaves an indelible impression on the observer. Acrodynia, Swift's disease, Feer's disease, pink disease, erythredema and dermatopolyneuritis are a few of the names that have been applied to the disease.

Abstract

Abstract Juvenile acrodynia is found in many parts of the world, and has frequently been reported from sections of the United States other than New York City. To date there is but one report of a patient with juvenile acrodynia from this city. The wide publication of a first report usually brings a train of reports of other cases not previously recognized. We believe that there must be many other cases unrecognized and undiagnosed. Since the symptoms are distinctive, there need be no excuse for failure to detect acrodynia. Once seen, the disease leaves an indelible impression on the observer. Acrodynia, Swift's disease, Feer's disease, pink disease, erythredema and dermatopolyneuritis are a few of the names that have been applied to the disease. Juvenile acrodynia, while perhaps fairly common, has been widely recognized as a distinct entity only within the last fifteen years. Evers1 of India, in 1880, described what References 1.
