This brief report was prompted by the observation and study of two unusual cases of a thrushlike eruption on the genitals, caused by a yeastlike fungus.
REPORT OF CASES
A man, aged 34, married, a private patient, seen on July 5, 1928, complained of itching of the penis, which was of four days' duration. He further volunteered the fact that his wife had been troubled for several days with a severe itching in the genital region, and it was his belief that he had contracted an infection from her. On examination no abnormal symptoms were observed, except that on close inspection a thin, fairly adherent, scaling band was observed on the corona glandis. The scales appeared as a thin film on the surface and were grayish white. The involved area was thoroughly cleansed, and several scales were removed for microscopic examination and culture.A few squamae were placed
