Abstract

The effectiveness of immunofluorescence, complement fixation, microagglutination serologic tests, intradermal skin test, and detection of histologic lesions were compared for use in diagnosis of spontaneous encephalitozoonosis in rabbits. The India ink and microbead agglutination reactions were compared with immunofluorescence and complement fixation by testing 11 single or pooled sera. Serologic tests correlated best with each other and less well with intradermal tests or presence of lesions. Immunofluorescence, India ink reaction and microbead agglutination were equally useful in detecting antibodies to Encephalitozoon cuniculi. The intradermal test correlated best with the presence of detectable lesions.
