Description : 231-232 p., [2 l. pl.] ; ill.: 2 photo. ; 24.5 cm.
Photographs : 2 mounted albumens.
Subject : Auricle — Proliferating epidermoid cyst; facial paralysis.
Two photographs of a 52 year old patient with a chronic phagedenic ulcer over his temple, developing from an epidermoid cyst of long duration which became virulent after it was struck by a comb. The first photograph presents the injured side of the subject's head, but it is the second photograph (Planche XXX) which is more interesting clinically, showing the facial paralysis resulting from lesions to the intraparotid nerve plexus caused by the cauterization treatments. Biographical information about Bassereau is scarce. He was a student of Ricord and seemed to have specialized in syphilology as did his more famous father, Léon Bassereau (1810-1887).
