Pathogenicity of the basidiospores of Filobasidiella neoformans.

Abstract

The pathogenicity of the purified basidiospores of Filosbasidiella neoformans was determined. The basidiospores were purified by successive filtration and inoculated into white Swiss female mice via the intracranial and intravenous route. At autopsy, infection was seen with as few as fifty inoculated cells. The brain, liver and spleen were examined culturally and histologically to prove the pathogenicity of the purified basidiospores .
