Abstract:

It is concluded that the hamster is a very useful animal for experimentally studying blastomycosis, especially South American blastomycosis. It is the only animal in which a generalized infection is easily obtained. Intraperitoneal infections produce particularly interesting results. Masses of cells consisting entirely of B. brasiliensis were observed.
