Languages of publication
Aerobic actionomycetes causing nocardiosis, GRT-(Gordon, Rhodococcus, Tsukamurella) infections, actinomycetomas, dermatophilosis and extrinsic allergic alveolitis, including etiology, epidemiology and pathogenesis of the diseases are described. The name "actinomycetosis" for all these diseases has been proposed.

A review of the abundant literature up to date, concerning the problem, is presented.
