URTICARIA PIGMENTOSA IN ADULTS TREATED BY THE ROENTGEN RAY: REPORT OF A CASE

URTICARIA PIGMENTOSA IN ADULTS TREATED BY THE ROENTGEN RAY: REPORT OF A CASE Abstract In February, 1923, Howard Fox1 presented an adult patient who had urticaria pigmentosa, who had been treated with the roentgen ray with considerable benefit. To determine the effect of treatment, Fox at first treated his patient on one side of the body only, but evidently irradiated the remaining lesions subsequently, as he reported2 having had a case which was entirely cleared by the roentgen ray. Presumably, this was the same case that was exhibited in New York. MacKee3 records two cases from the literature treated by the roentgen ray—those of Török and Scheim of Jacob. Török and Schein's patient, according to the original article, was 25 years old and presented a typical outbreak on the trunk and extremities. A palm sized area on the flexor surface of the right elbow was irradiated until a reaction was produced. The lesions disappeared from this area. Jacob's original report could References 1.

Abstract

Abstract In February, 1923, Howard Fox1 presented an adult patient who had urticaria pigmentosa, who had been treated with the roentgen ray with considerable benefit. To determine the effect of treatment, Fox at first treated his patient on one side of the body only, but evidently irradiated the remaining lesions subsequently, as he reported2 having had a case which was entirely cleared by the roentgen ray. Presumably, this was the same case that was exhibited in New York. MacKee3 records two cases from the literature treated by the roentgen ray—those of Török and Scheim of Jacob. Török and Schein's patient, according to the original article, was 25 years old and presented a typical outbreak on the trunk and extremities. A palm sized area on the flexor surface of the right elbow was irradiated until a reaction was produced. The lesions disappeared from this area. Jacob's original report could References 1.
