Abstract

A morphologic comparison of 47 strains of C. immitis on two different media was undertaken. The variation in colonial and microscopic morphology was emphasized. Absence of sporulation on Sabouraud's dextrose agar was observed with 10 strains. Three strains produced no spores on either media. All strains killed mice, and all strains produced exactly the same type of spherules.
