Abstract: The acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is characterized by opportunistic infections including pneumonia caused by Pneumocystic carinii. As a staining method for Pneumocystis carinii, modified Grocott's methenamine silver method has been used routinely. This procedure can identify the cyst walls of Pneumocystis carinii, but, can not identify the intracystic bodies of Pneumocystis carinii. The author has applied the method using ammoniacal silver and Giemsa staining, and found that this is a consistently reliable staining procedure for the cyst walls and intracystic bodies of Pneumocystis carinii. Moreover, this new method may detect mature and immature cysts of Pneumocystis carinii.
