Abstract

Abstract Lichen myxedematosus (papular mucinosus) is a relatively uncommon disease. Since Dalton presented the first American case of lichen myxedematosus at the Dermatological Conference of the Mississippi Valley and Central States Dermatological Association on Feb. 9, 1941,1 a few additional cases were reported in the American literature.2,3 In the European literature one encounters but rarely studies on lichen myxedematosus.4-7 Hence, the report of an additional case of lichen myxedematosus observed by us in the summer of 1957 is deemed worthy of publication. Report of Case A 55-year-old white widow whose occupation was that of office cleaning developed a skin eruption on the dorsa of the hands and wrists in the fall of 1956. The eruption then spread to involve the skin of the forearms, arms, thighs, knees, and sternum. The affected regions then became coarse, rough, thickened, and red.
