Abstract

Summary

The endemicity of two areas in the Canal Zone, where clinical cases of histoplasmosis had occurred, was established by recovery of from animals with naturally acquired histoplasmosis. was isolated from twelve spiny rats (), seven common opossums () and four “four-eyed” opossums ().

The presence or absence of histoplasmin hypersensitivity and complement-fixing antibodies could not be correlated with culture results in the 90 spiny rats studied. The ear of the spiny rat was found to be a good site for determining the histoplasmin sensitivity of these animals.
