Not illustrated. 1906 edition. Excerpt: ...As a result of this hypertrophy of the epidermis on the one hand, and of vesicle formation on the other, the rete is in many points quite flattened out. Unna lays special stress on this feature as being particularly valuable in diagnosis. In the more chronic lichen papules, to such an extent is the formation of vesicles carried that the appearances portrayed in my Textbook of Skin Diseases (5th ed., Leipzig, Thieme, 1905, S. 91) are produced. The infiltration of the corium is fairly marked and the sweat glands display a cystic degenerative dilatation of their lumen. It is only the sebaceous glands and hair follicles which preserve their normal condition. Plate XII. Fig. 28. Lichen syphiliticus. x85, Obj. 3, Ocul. 3. h = hair, i = infiltration, b = connective tissue, g = vessel, s = sweat glands, r = rete, ri--giant cells, p = plasma cells, strc = stratum corneum, strg = stratum granulosum. The preparation is taken from the case, an account of which has been published in my Dermat. Zentralblatt (3 Jahrg., Jan. 1900) by Hirschlaff. Whilst the epidermis is slightly raised, in the corium a fairly sharply-defined infiltration of epithelial and lymph cells is met with according to the investigations of Kaposi, J. Neumann, Griffini, and Michelson. Often, but not invariably, the infiltration is located around a hair follicle. Some giant cells are observed in the centre, so that the nodule bears a certain resemblance to a bacillus containing tubercle; a numerous collection of plasma cells forms a striking feature in the vicinity. Neither Michelson nor Hirschlaff has been able to discover tubercle bacilli, and the latter observer has not succeeded, by inoculating the contents of a tubercle on guinea-pigs, in causing a subsequent outbreak of a general...
