Lupus Vulgaris in India
Gurmohan Singh
November-December 1974, 40(6):257-260
Skin tuberculosis is not a rarity in India. Its incidence was 5.9 per thousand among general skin out-patients. Lupus vulgaris was the commonest, constituting 74% of total skin tuberculosis. There was significant high frequency of disease in females. The buttocks, thighs and legs are more often involved than the face. It is hypothesized that mode of infection in lupus vulgaris could be both exogenous and endogenous. Higher frequency of pyoderma on buttocks around which the tubercle bacilli may get inoculated seems to result in a high incidence of tuberculosis at this site.

Urethritis Due To a Foreign Body
RV Ramanarao, T Venkataswamy
November-December 1974, 40(6):246-247
A case of urethritis due to a long needle, which was introduced by the patient, was described. Though foreign body urethritis is a well-known clinical entity, it is a rare condition and a review of the literature reveals how varied the types of-foreign bodies which have been introduced within the urethra are. Behind the urge to introduce foreign bodies into the urethra lies an abnormal erotic impulse or a neurotic or a psychotic personality.
