32 PLATE XIV DERMATITIS MEDICAMENTOSA (Acute Vesicular Iodine Dermatitis) 33 3 AN ATLAS OF THE COMMONER DERMATITIS, (PLATE SKIN DISEASES MYCOTIC XV) T H E condition illustrated here is exceedingly common in both sexes and at all ages between 20 and 40 Supposed at one time to be due to a disorder of the sweat glands, 4 it has long been labelled dysidrosis ', and, for want of a better, the name still persists. T h e current view adopted at the present time favours a mycotic origin in the great majority of cases, and although a fungus can but rarely be demonstrated or cultured in eczematized cases, it affords a rational explanation of the symptoms, and a satisfactory basis for treatment.

Beyond residual erythema and slight scaling there were no local manifestations, but on examining the foot for a possible focus I found extensive epidermophytosis involving all the interdigital spaces, with a deep fissure between the second and third toes. A similar but less marked fungus infection was also noted in the left foot. T h e patient admitted having noticed it for over two years, but neither she nor her doctor had connected it with the acute manifestations above described. There could be little doubt that the fissure had opened the door to a streptococcus, for, i f the infecting organism had been an epidermophyton, immunity would long since have become established, and one attack would almost certainly have sufficed to cure the tendency.

T h e prognosis at his age and under the circumstances o f his home life is not good, and a complete recovery is most unlikely. —The best results are obtained by a combination o f methods, for there is no specific therapeutic agent, and every case needs individual investigation and study. It has recently been stated by Ingram of Leeds that nasopharyngeal sepsis, and particularly chronic sinusitis, are common associations. Elimination of septic stumps, dead or devitalized teeth, and infected tonsils, should whenever possible precede other measures for relief, and are frequently rewarded by rapid improvement in the chronic types of the disease.
