Original Communications.: A CASE OF SYMMETRICAL CUTANEOUS ATROPHY OF THE EXTREMITIES.

Original Communications.: A CASE OF SYMMETRICAL CUTANEOUS ATROPHY OF THE EXTREMITIES. Abstract Mr. President and Gentlemen: The case which I am about to report, while not a unique one, is nevertheless such a rare form of atrophy of the skin that it has seemed to me not unworthy of engaging your attention. The patient exhibiting the peculiar affection was sent to me at the Polyclinic by Dr. F. P. Griswold, of Meriden, Conn., about the middle of last October. I was then only able to make a few notes and secure some indifferent photographs before the patient returned to his home. A second visit was paid me at my request about one month ago. At this time I could not see that any changes had taken place in the appearances of the disease during the six months' interval. Apparently the case had remained quite stationary. In the presence of the patient on this occasion two of the photographs taken previously were colored. I regret that my opportunities for studying the case have been so meager. Such notes as I was able to make are as follows: The patient is a man forty-five years of age, native of Germany, by occupation a varnisher in brass and ironworks. His appearance is that of a well-developed, well-nourished person, and his manner indicates fair intelligence. He is of spare, sinewy build and of brownish complexion, with dark hair and eyes. He states that his mother died... http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Dermatology American Medical Association
