Excerpt from The Medical Times and Gazette, 1879, Vol. 1: A Journal of Medical Science, Literature, Criticism, and News
You will have gathered from what I have said as to the absence of tendency to ulceration and to inﬂammatory swell ing, that lupus erythematosus is not, in any marked degree, scrofulous, for these features are characteristic of struma wherever we meet with it. There can be no doubt that this form of lupus is more nearly connected with psoriasis (or the dartrous diathesis) than it is with scrofula. We may infer that from its symmetry; and the inference is, as I shall have to show in the sequel, sometimes borne out by the occurrence of a general scaly eruption in conjunction with patches of lupus on the face.
