In neither of the cases of disseminated blastomycosis here reported is the course of the disease completed. Both patients, however, have passed out of our hands and it is extremely doubtful whether either will come again under our observation. We, therefore, place the two cases on record now and principally because certain facts noted in connection with them appear to us to ado something to our knowledge of the clinical course, especially in the earlier stages of this interesting disease. It is not necessary at this time to review in detail the facts observed in connection with the previously recorded cases. That is done satisfactorily in the recent reports by Bassoe,1 by Eisendrath and Ormsby,2 and, so far as the closely related "coccidioidal granuloma" in California is concerned, by Ophüls.3
