Abstract

Fifty-two serum samples from dogs with primary renal failure were tested for antibodies to Encephalitozoon cuniculi. Twelve were positive as compared to two positive samples from a control group of 42 dogs. There was a statistically significant difference between these two groups which suggests an association between infection with E. cuniculi and the development of chronic renal disease.
