• Twenty indigenous cases of favus in two families residing in the province of Quebec were studied. Importantly, the disease, although active, remained undiagnosed for many years in most of the cases. The finding of active cases suggests that the disease is still endemic in regions previously described as harboring cases, namely the province of Quebec and possibly Kentucky.
