Abstract
Three groups of 32 mice each were exposed to air containing high cones, of spores and sacrificed at intervals. Pulmonary lesions cleared within 1 week and the few animals which died were histologically and culturally negative for fungi. Tissue reaction was most extensive with A. fumigatus and least with A. niger.
