A fatal case of an infection by the parasite, Pneumocystis carinii Delanoë & Delanoë, 1914, is described
in a young domestic goat. The disease was manifested as a severe diffuse interstitial pneumonitis accompanied by filling of the alveolar air spaces by large numbers of organisms. Light and electron microscopic studies revealed the parasite to be identical to previously described cases in man and other animals. This is apparently the first case recognized in an animal in Africa.
