A transmissible agent (AHA) causing ascites and hepatitis in mice has been described. No known pathogenic bacteria, fungi, protozoa, leptospira, rickettsia, or viruses have been demonstrated in the infected mice. AHA does not pass through a Seitz filter and differs in most respects from the agents previously described which produce hepatitis in mice.
