Sycosis menti.
- Delineations of Cutaneous Diseases, 65. - London, Henry G. Bohn, 1817 (1849), 1 hand colored engraved plate, 246 x 242 mm, added a descriptive text leaf. SYCOSIS menti. The tubercles in this eruption, which almost exclusively affects men, usually-appear first on the under lip, or prominent part of the chin, in an irregular cluster : but other clusters and single tubercles soon follow, often covering nearly the whole surface on which the beard grows, up to the ears, and under the jaw towards the neck. The tubercles are red and smooth, and nearly equal to a pea in magnitude, but of a conoidal form. As they suppurate slowly and partially, and discharge a small quantity of thick matter, by which the hairs of the unshaven beard become matted together, that appearance like the pulp of a fig, which has given origin to the name of the disease, and which is here represented on the chin, is often produced. - "In 1814 Bateman acquired the copyright to the engravings in the Willan treatise. He arranged to have the plates refurbished, replaced a few, added to them a completely new set of engravings depicting the later Genera, which had never before been illustrated."
