Pneumocysts have been detected in the sputum in patients with nonspecific lung diseases (56 +/- 2%), including those with acute (43 +/- 4%) and chronic (63 +/- 3%) pneumocystosis, in those with a severe course (70.8 +/- 8%); in those with a satisfactory condition (48 +/- 3%); in those with occupational hazards (78 +/- 7%) in smokers (56 +/- 7%); in those without occupational hazards (39 +/- 3%); in those with an inflammation in the upper lobe of the lung in the presence of pneumonia (84 +/- 7%), in cold (62 +/- 3%) and warm (48 +/- 4) seasons, in north (66 +/- 3%) and south (28 +/- 4%) regions. P. carini per ml of sputum numbers in the range of 165 +/- 15 to 195 +/- 25; that in upper lobar pneumonia is 330 +/- 55. In patients with HIV/AIDS, P. carini has been found in the sputum in patients infected with HIV parenterally (66 +/- 4%) and sexually (54 +/- 5%); cysts per ml of sputum number 240 +/- 20 and 200 +/- 20, respectively; the content of CD4+ per microliter of blood is 480 +/- 40 and 205 +/- 30, respectively.
