A tracheal aspirate from which parainfluenza 2 (PI-2) virus but not chlamydiae was isolated demonstrated positive immunofluorescence of elementary body- and reticulate body-like particles on direct examination with anti-chlamydia monoclonal antibodies (Syva Co.). In subsequent studies, we found this reagent to show specific staining of this strain of PI-2 as well as of 3 of 18 additional PI-2 strains that were evaluated.
