Résumé

1. Histoplasmin skin tests with histoplasmin 1/1000, were performed on 161 Indians of the reserve of Obedjiwan, situated in the Abitibi-East County, the most northerly county of the Province of Quebec. There were 8 positive reactors.

2. Comparative results of histoplasmin hypersensitivity were, for the age group 5 to 15 years, 1.5 per cent at Obedjiwan (north) and 26.7 per cent at Beloeil (south).

The suggestion is made that the geographic distribution of histoplasmin sensitivity in the Province of Quebec may follow the law of prevalence as expressed by Palmer for the distribution in the United States.
