Abstract : The retest coccidioidin reaction in an apparently healthy individual known to be coccidioidin-positive developed more quickly and was of a greater magnitude than that of an equivalent test in a virginal site in the same individual. In both reactions erythema, induration, and/or edema were evident. Although the peak of the retest reaction was at 12 hours, readings made at 24 and 48 hours were in a definitively positive category.
