The Third Ibero Latin American Congress of Dermatology was held in Mexico City Oct. 21 to 27, 1956. This Congress was organized by the Colegio Ibero Latino Americano of Dermatología founded in Habana in April, 1948, by numerous distinguished dermatologists who attended the Fifth International Congress of Leprosy. The First Congress was held in Rio de Janeiro in September, 1950, under the presidency of Prof. João de Aguiar Pupo of Brazil. The Second Congress took place in Madrid, Prof. Jose Gay Prieto acting as President, and in May, 1959, the Fourth Congress was held in Lisbon and Coimbra under the Presidency of Prof. Augusto Salazar Leite. All these meetings have had a total success from the scientific and social standpoint.
