Notes :

No author is identified, but it is most certainly the work of Alfred Hardy with collaboration by Montméja. The photograph accompanying this paper was later published in the 1872 second edition of Hardy and Montméja's atlas Clinique photographique de l'Hopital Saint-Louis and also made into a wax model by Baretta. Bazin described a similar affection as an "éruption papilliforme consécutive à de l'eczema." For the purpose of classification, however, Hardy stressed the fungoid aspects of the papillar growth and termed it: hypertrophic lichen.
