ID#: 12182
This 1965 image depicted an enlarged view of a single cutaneous lesion, located on the left lateral wrist region of the same patient seen in PHIL 12180. The patient, a 20-year-old male displayed numerous cutaneous arsenical keratoses, and this proved to be a very early lesion. From his infancy, this individual suffered with asthma, and approximately 10-years prior to this photograph, he had been treated for this condition with a medication containing arsenic. These arsenical keratotic lesions had formed over the last two years. Note that in the background, one can see the supraumbilical squamous cell carcinoma in situ lesion seen clearly in PHIL 12181.
