Twelve patients with a distinctive clinical picture of recalcitrant, pyodermatous infection of toe webs were studied and treated. The probable pathogenic microorganisms in all cases were species of gramnegative bacilli. No single or simple therapeutic agent was found to be regularly effective for quick cure. Nine of the 12 patients' conditions were eventually brought under control or cured by persistent use of a combination of topically given remedies.
