dc.description.abstractA form of skin ulceration, Buruli ulcer, has been described in Uganda which differs from the ordinary tropical ulcer in its clinical and histological appearances and its lack of response to antibiotics [this Bulletin, 1962, v. 59, 204]. A similar form of ulceration has been described in Australia, and a Mycobacterium (M. ulcerans) isolated. This, or a similar organism, has been found in Buruli ulcer in Uganda [ibid., 1963, v. 60, 375]. In 1962, a new focus of the disease was found in the Madi district, an area along the Nile in the north of the country bordering on the Sudan. A team from Makerere medical school visited the area in 1963 to study the condition.en_US
