Although the case here reported did not present any unusual features, I believe that it deserves a short report on account of the rarity of the condition. So far as I am aware there has been only one case reported as occurring in North Dakota. A recent article by Austman,1 in which he reported a case in Manitoba, contains a complete survey of the literature.
REPORT OF CASE
A. G., a white boy, aged 18, a native of North Dakota, consulted me, Aug. 8, 1928, complaining that he had a snake in his back. Four weeks previously he had been swimming in a stagnant pool of water. The next day he noticed that his back became very itchy. The itching continued to bother him, being worse at night, and at times he thought he could feel something crawling under the skin. He had not seen the eruption until that day.Examination
