The treatment of disseminated coccidioidomycosis has been unsatisfactory. In its progressive or meningitic form the disease has been uniformly fatal, although some cases have lingered on for a long time. In recent years an increasing number of reports have appeared dealing with the promising results of treatment of certain disseminated mycotic infections with stilbamidine. Arrest of blastomycosis by stilbamidine therapy can now be accepted.5, 6, 7, 14, 15, 16, 19, 23, 25, 26 Successful treatment of actinomycosis has been reported.12 The efficacy of the drug in the treatment of other mycotic diseases, however, seems doubtful.13, 14
