Nevus Lipomatodes. Presented by Dr. Bechet.
S. G., a boy, aged 14, came to Dr. Whitehouse's service at the Skin and Cancer Hospital for the relief of a large mass on the ear, extending into the scalp, which had been present since birth. The lesion was soft and loose in texture; the surface was irregular and showed many closely packed folds and deep furrows. It covered most of the ear and extended into the scalp.
Dr. Andrews: I believe it is a nevus, but nevus papillomatosus would be a better term for it.Dr. Wise: The roentgen rays would have no effect on this type of lesion.
