Description : 401-407 p. ; ill.: 2 phot. ; 26 cm.

Photographs : 2 photoengravings in-text (unverified).

Subject : Skin — Idiopathic diseases.

Notes :

The first photograph is a close-up of the 14 year-old subject's face, the second is a close-up of his right buttock and forearm. A very interesting case which Bronson finally labeled, acne cachecticorum phlegmonosa et ulcerosa. However, Bronson notes the neuropathic symptoms and writes that the boy worked in a wallpaper factory where he was probably exposed to a combination of toxins including arsenic, lead and cadmium.
