Abstract

A Chlamydial agent was isolated repeatedly from a variety of body fluids in a Negro adolescent boy with a fatal progressive lymphedema and widespread lymphangiosarcoma. The hybrid Chlamydial organism cultured resembled closely Chlamydia trachomatis. The exact relationship of the infection to the lymphedema and lymphangiosarcoma in this patient remains to be clarified.
