Abstract

Summary

Alterations were studied in 857 samples of skeletal muscle from mice experimentally infected with and . In some of the animals the infection was followed up to 126 days. The presence of infection had no apparent effect on the picture of the “polymyositis” caused by infection. There was an apparent relationship between the percentage of damaged muscles and the number of trypanosomes inoculated. Schistosome infection that was not associated with trypanosomiasis caused minor muscle lesions in only 5 of the 107 muscles examined. These consisted of intramuscular panarteritis and perivascular lymphocytic infiltration in the perimysium.

The rates of spontaneous death in the several experimental groups suggested that infection may have had a protective effect against infection.
