Abstract

Abstract Literature on the subject of mycotic infections has dealt largely with the extent of their distribution among persons and on their chemical prophylaxis and therapeusis. More recently, the relation of allergy to the manifestations of the diseases produced by various fungi has been given considerable thought. As a result of this association, a new mode of therapy, namely, the use of desensitization by means of extracts, suggested itself and has been reported on from time to time. The late Bruno Bloch, of Switzerland, and his followers in this country have been largely responsible for stimulating interest along this line of approach. As a result of closer cooperation between the bacteriologist and the clinician, numerous conditions that were relegated to the heterogenous group of "eczema" have been definitely identified as belonging to one of the fungous infections. This is especially true of those cases in which vesicular eruptions on the References 1. Sulzberger, M.
