The spotty distribution of C. immitis within endemic areas has been puzzling. Studies of one small parcel of virgin land where C. immitis has been recovered repeatedly—including the chemistry and the presence of organisms antagonistic to C. immitis—indicate that the growth of C. immitis is somewhat enhanced by sodium and calcium salts and that these same two salts depress the growth of two important antagonists. A third antagonist is unable to survive in the spring and summer temperatures commonly found in the soil of the area.
