This comprises a survey of the epidemiologic problem of bartonellosis (verruga peruana) in Peru, including historical considerations, geographic distribution, vectors and factors important in its control. The importance and usefulness of D.D.T. (4,4′-dichlorodiphenyltrichlorothene) in the control of this disease so far is emphasized and the promise that this drug brings for future more complete control of the disease in Peru is discussed in detail. Several excellent plates, charts, and other illustrative material are included.
