Abstract:

Data from skin-test programs among residents of the Republic of Panama and among school-children within Panama City confirm previous observations that differences in the prevalence of skin-test sensitivity do exist within a known endemic re gion. The clinical studies revealed at least 39 new cases of histoplasmosis and for the first time an adequate documentation of certain of the varied presentations associated with histo plasmosis in children. Studies on bats as a potential reservoir and potential agent for the dissemination of infection in nature continued with at least five genera now shown to be in fected in nature. Author
