Abstract

From August 1973 through May 1974 a total of 148 marmosets () were examined for blood parasites. Parasites were detected in 93.2% of the monkeys. Direct examination of blood revealed 82.4% infected with trypanosomes; was seen in 1.3% of the animals examined, in 52.7% and in 25%. However, the use of several diagnostic tests (direct microscopic examination, hemoculture, xenodiagnosis, and animal inoculation) in 15 marmosets revealed in 40%, in 93%, and in 87%. The high rate of infection among marmosets suggests that they are important natural hosts of and in the Panama Canal Zone.
