A case of microsporia caused by Microsporum canis in an anthropoid ape stock is discussed two young orangutans, two young gorillas, and an animal keeper suffered from the disease. Two gorillas, a chimpanzee, and an orangutan - - all cage-mates of the infected animals -- as well as an adult chimpanzee and another animal keeper were latent carriers of M. canis.
