From a diagnostic point of view, serology and skin tests, permitted identification of the Malassez and Vignal bacillus in six reported observations. The antibody titer found in these patients although weak were significant. The skin hypersensivity test was specific. From the clinical view point, these 6 observations show the extreme polymorphism of the infection by the Malassez and Vignal bacillus. They also show the absence of boundaries between the localized forms mesenteric or iliac and the generalized forms.
