The studies on the serology of Candida emphasize the fact that their antigenic structure is complicated. The results of the agglutination, precipitin reactions and complement fixation tests are confusing, contradictory and, so far, too impractical for the clinical laboratory. This study is an attempt to clarify the situation by using the newer techniques of the Ouchterlogy agar gel-diffusion precipitin method, (18) the hemolysin method, as well as the usual agglutination procedure. Since the precipitin method appears of possible value in diagnosis, this will be the main emphasis in this work.
