Abstract

PAGET’S DISEASE OF THE VULVA. BY W. DUBREUILH, Professor o Dermatology at the University, Bordeaux. f READAT THE ANNUAL MEETING THE BRITISH OF MEDICAL ASSOCIATION AT CHELTENHAM. THE affection of the breast described in 1874 by Paget, to which his name has been given, is clinically a chronic eczema-like lesion of the areola ending in cancer of the breast. The diagnosis from eczema of the breast was uot clearly established by Paget, and after him it was thought that every chronic eczema of the breast might end in cancer, so that breasts have been amputated for simple eczemm. Later researches, especially those of Darier and Wickham, have shown that Paget’s disease has nothing in common with eczema except a superficial resemblance, and that its epidermic lesions have a strong analogy with those of epithelioma. At the present time it is, we believe, universally admitted that Paget’s disease of the breast is from the outset a superficial epitheliomatous affection ; an epithelioma in patches, not going beyond the epidermis, not penetrating the derma, yet capable of spreading along the milk-ducts and of causing in the gland one of the most malignant forms of cancer.
