Abstract

Summary

A soil theory is offered to explain the geographic variations in histoplasmin sensitivity in the United States and the world. It is suggested that the red-yellow podzolic soils, because of their peculiar characteristics, provide the best natural habitat for the growth of . The theory is tested by comparing the prevalence of histoplasmin sensitivity in areas with red-yellow podzolic soils and in areas with other soils. The percentage of histoplasmin reactors is significantly higher in locales with red-yellow podzolic soils.
