SPF white mice were inoculated intraperitoneally with 5 strains of saprophytic fungi of the mycelial genera Chrysosporium (C. keratinophilum, C. tropicutn) and Paecilomyces (P. lilacinus, P. marquandii, P. victoriae). The fungi caused granulomatous lesions in the peritoneal cavity and they were recultured (except P. lilacinus and P. marquandii) two months after inoculation. Spores, short hyphae and budding cells of all the fungi were observed in the granulomas stained by periodic-acid Schiff (PAS) and methenamine-silver nitrate (Grocott) techniques.
