Abstract

Summary

  • 1.  There exists in the zone of Coto and Golfo Dulce (boundary zone between Costa Rica and Panama) a dermatosis which is contagious with tendency towards an epidemic character.
  • 2.  The clinical and serological characters and the influence of the arsenical treatment leads one to believe that it it a spirochetosis.
  • 3.  The form of the papules, their color, their mode of evolution, make one think of yaws.
  • 4.  Failure to find the spirochete was probably due to the rather advanced state of the disease.
  • 5.  The cases of yaws herein described, if correctly diagnosed, appear to be the first to be reported from Costa Rica.
