Lupus Erythematosus may be discussed here. It is believed by many dermatologists to be intimately connected with tuberculosis, i.e. brought about in some way by the products of tubercle bacilli. My own view is that it is of toxaemic origin, not necessarily tuberculous, but occurring in people with poor nutrition and weak circulation, and often no doubt with tuberculous glands. The usual indications for dieting are that these patients want building up and supporting by a generous and fatty diet.
