Abstract The purpose of this paper is not to report a case of pachyonychia congenita of Jadassohn, which has been excellently described by Tauber, Goldman and Claassen,1 Sohrweide,2 Andrews and Strumwasser>3 and Diasio,4 or to summarize the thorough reports of Hammett and Reimann>5 and Brunsting and Simonsen>6 on the sulfhydryl groups, but to demonstrate the value of buffered cysteine hydrochloride in other conditions than ulcerated lesions. I wish to report here the progress of a girl, aged 20, previously presented by Tauber and his associates. She had had persistent and resistant foul-smelling erosive lesions for a period of seven years and the condition had failed to respond to innumerable types of therapy. Figure 1 shows the type of lesion which was present, not only on the lateral aspects of the feet, but also on the plantar and posterior portions in symmetrical fashion. The lesions were References 1.
