In examination of the ultrastructure of excised tissue and other material from patients with various diseases, principally dermatovenerological affections and with malignant tumors, and in healthy control subjects, patterns suggesting mycoplasma were repeatedly found in certain diseases only. Specific attempts to isolate mycoplasma from the material were made, in which previously patterns of a mycoplasma type had frequently been seen. It was possible to culture mycoplasma-like organisms in vitro from patients with the following diseases: malignant melanoma, mycosis fungoides, prickle cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, non-specific urethritis, pemphigus erythematosus, panarteritis nodosa and vasculitis allergica cutis.
