Two cases of Aldrich's syndrome are reported. One is an eight-year-old boy who to our knowledge is older than any patient earlier reported with this syndrome.

In both patients reported here, the diminished resistance to infections is constantly pronounced, mostly indicated by repeated otitis media attacks.

Topical treatment of the skin with steroid ointments (partly under plastic occlusion) together with pure coal tar, has had a beneficial effect.

In both patients the titer of isoagglutinins is significantly reduced.
