Abstract : Monkeys were inoculated with Coccidioides immitis and communally caged with control animals. Six experiments were performed to ascertain the transmissibility of the fungus. Cross-contamination occurs when incomplete air-washing does not eliminate a secondary fungal aerosol. However, a new air-washing technique eliminated the secondary aerosol. When this cross-contamination is eliminated there is no transmission of coccidioidomycosis.
