The Third World Congress of the International Society of Tropical Dermatology was held in São Paulo, Brazil, from Sept 1 to 5,1974. It was a great scientific and social success.
Just as the previous congresses, the first held in Naples in 1965 and the second in Kyoto in 1969, this third congress has shown the increasing interest of the membership in the activities of the society. In spite of an epidemic of meningitis in São Paulo that received much publicity in the newspapers, a record number of physicians attended, many with their families. They represented 46 countries.
The congress was held in the new Palacio das Convençoes, Parque Anhembi. This modern facility consists of an enormous central auditorium with capacity for 3,500 persons, and numerous smaller but comfortable and well-equipped rooms accommodating 300 to 400 persons each. There were simultaneous translation facilities in all rooms. The opening ceremony was held
