Abstract

Abstract Three cases of mycetoma, in which the causative fungus would seem to be identical, have been described. The fungus is regarded as belonging to the actinomycotic group of mycetomas in accordance with the definitions given by Chalmers and Archibald (1918) . A culture was forwarded to Mr. P. TATE, of the Molteno Institute for Research in Parasitology, University of Cambridge, who kindly reported that the fungus most probably was Aspergillus pelletieri ( Laveran, 1906), a synonym for which is Nocardia indica ( Kanthack, 1893), ( Chalmers, and Christopherson, 1916 ).
