Late in 1942 it became apparent to the members of the pulmonary section of an Army General Hospital which serves the southwestern part of the United States that the number of cases of so-called minimal tuberculosis was increasing. It was decided to make intracutaneous tests on all individuals with suspicious lung lesions, not only with tuberculin but also with coccidioidin. One or more coccidioidin intracutaneous tests were made on 372 patients. One hundred twenty-five of these had a positive coccidioidin test. One hundred selected cases who had a positive coccidioidin test and residual roentgenographic findings in the lungs were chosen
