INTRODUCTION:

The ringworm affair refers to circumstances involving at least 20,000 Israeli individuals who were treated between 1948 and 1960 for tinea capitis (ringworm) with ionizing radiation to the head area. An estimated 200,000 children worldwide received X-ray treatment for tinea capitis in accordance with the standard Adamson-Kienbock procedure between 1910 and 1959, until griseofulvin, the first effective antifungal agent for ringworm, was introduced. The population suffering from the disease in Israel at the time was composed mostly of newly arrived immigrants mostly from North Africa, as well as some from Middle East and elsewhere.

 

I need to do more research about Dr Chaim Sheba.
