Abstract
This is a case report of the Weber-Christian Disease that was diagnosed at Dept, of Pediatrics. S.N.U.H. in May 1968. The case was a 7-year-old boy who entered the hospital with complaints of pain in the both lower extremities, generalized edema and palpable nodules in all extremities with mild fever. There were no remarkable prodromal symptoms, such as chronic nausea, vomiting, epigastric pain and tenderness, except anorexia and mild fever. Fever fluctuated throughout the course, even in mild degrees. Nodules were small at the onset. They waxed and waned in size, disappearing and reappearing, until they reached the thumb-size to wall-nut size. The Diagnosis was established by clinical history, physical examinations and various indispensable measures including X-ray examinations, skin biopsy.
