Pneumocystis carinii is an opportunistic pathogen that causes severe pulmonary disease in humans, dogs, rats, mice and other vertebrate species with acquired, induced, or inherited immune deficiency syndromes. In addition, this procedure will demonstrate Actinomyces and related species, Nocardia asteroids, and certain encapsulated bacteria.
