Abstract Chromoblastomycosis Occurring in New York City. Presented by Dr. Maurice J. Costello. A 47-year-old Negro is presented from Lenox Hill Hospital, where he was found to have pulmonary sarcoidosis on routine preemployment roentgenography of his chest.

This lesion had a raised border, a central fissured area, and surrounding mottled, macular hyperpigmentation. No similar lesions were detected elsewhere.
