Summary

In the third communication of this series the case history of a miner, age 38, is given. The patient suffered from generalized trichophytosis for 17 years. He finally died on encephalitis. Pathologic foci were found in the frontal and occipital lobes of the big hemispheres and also in the cerebellum. The causative agent,Tr. violaceum was successfully cultured from the affected areas of the brain tissue as well as from the sputum and urine of the patient, while still living. It is assumed that the fungus infection reached the central nervous system by the hematogenous route.
