Abstract

Despite the small number of cases, related with difficulties in obtaining histoplasmin, our study showed a sensitivity level similar to medium endemic areas of the USA. The positive skin test rate is much higher than the rate reported before in West Indies, in a sample of the population under 25 years of age.
