LECITHIN AND CHOLESTEROL STUDIES IN DERMATOPHYTOSIS: PRELIMINARY REPORT

Abstract

Abstract The biochemical studies of the fungous infections of the feet and hands which we present in this preliminary report were undertaken to shed, if possible, some light on the chronicity and relapses in this type of disease. The mycologic studies of Sabouraud, Weidman, Williams and many others have made us familiar with the different varieties of fungi affecting man, while the immunologic investigations of Jadassohn, Bloch and others have acquainted us with the reactions of the organism to this type of infection. The conception of dermatophytosis, therefore, has expanded during the past few years, and cutaneous diseases formerly unclassified or ill defined are now readily recognized as belonging to this group of mycotic diseases. Dermatophytosis of the feet and hands is unquestionably more prevalent than in former years, and its cure presents a real problem in dermatology. Furthermore, it is assuming importance from an economic standpoint, for many persons affected References 1. Krasnow, Frances; and Rosen, A. S.: Proc. Soc. Exper. Biol. & Med. 26: 67, 1928 2. J.
