Abstract

The organism which proved fatal to a boy of 14 was isolated under the direction of Dr. John Gammel of the Lakeside Hospital, Cleveland, Ohio, from a lesion measuring approximately 9 by 13 cm. located on the back. This large granulomatous process persisted for months; the central portion was ulcerated and freely exuded a tenacious, mucopurulent, sometimes blood streaked discharge. In the periphery there were several open and closed sinuses. Two biopsies revealed no actinomycotic granules although the organism was observed in sections of the granulomatous tissue. No granules were present in the morning discharge after washing with saline solution. The clinical diagnosis was paramycetoma.
