Pneumocystis carinii is a special organism that causes a variety of host reactions depending on the resistance and immune response. The disease was originally observed in premature and newborn infants, associated with interstitial plasma cell infiltrates, which lead to rapid suffocation of the infant. An understanding of all aspects of the disease and all its patterns is required in view of the worldwide epidemic of immune deficiency of various etiologies associated with the nearly ubiquitous infestation with Pneumocystis carinii.
