Clinical evaluation of a cryptococcal antigen latex agglutination test for diagnosis of cryptococcosis in cats.
J Am Vet Med Assoc. 1990 May 01; 196(9):1470-3.JA

Abstract

A commercial cryptococcal antigen latex agglutination test was used to evaluate sera from 20 cats with cryptococcosis and 184 cats without cryptococcosis. Cryptococcal antigen was detected in the sera from 19 of 20 cats with cryptococcosis. Antigen was not detected in sera from any of the cats without cryptococcosis. The test had sensitivity of 95% and specificity of 100%.
