In this book the authors report 13 cases of torulosis of the central nervous system, in some of which the condition was associated with torulosis of the lungs and subcutaneous tissue, syphilis, Hodgkin's disease or pulmonary tuberculosis. The detailed study of their own material supplemented by a review of a large literature forms the basis for a discussion of torulosis of various organs, its signs, course, prognosis and differential diagnosis. This excellent study includes the central nervous system, the respiratory system, the lymphatic system, the skin and mucous membranes, the bones, the joints and other tissues. A special chapter is devoted to the microbiology of Torula histolytica, its structure in tissues and in cultures, its resistance to heat, its viability and its antigenic properties. Another chapter deals with experimental torulosis in animals—mice, rats, guinea pigs, rabbits, monkeys, cats and dogs. Pathologic changes of human and animal torulosis in various organs
