Scanning electron microscope studies on the parasitic cycle of Coccidioides immitis

Abstract

The process involved in the in vivo conversion of the arthroconidia of Coccidioides immitis into endosporulating spherules was studied with the aid of a scanning electron microscope. By the fifth and sixth day after inoculation of laboratory mice, complete conversion had occurred in their kidneys, lungs, and spleens. The progressive stages of cleavage that… (More)
