The theory of almost étale coverings allows to compare crystalline and \(p\)-adic étale cohomology, for schemes over a \(p\)-adic discrete valuation ring. Using Frobenius the main technical result (a purity theorem) is reproved and extended to all toroidal singularities. As a consequence one obtains Tsuji’s comparison theorem for schemes with such type of singularities, even for cohomology with coefficients in suitable local systems. On the way we have to establish some basic results on finiteness of crystalline cohomology with such coefficients.
