Additional info for Fungal Infection: Diagnosis and Management, Third Edition

Sample text

Immunoperoxidase and immunofluorescent staining reagents, both monoclonal and polyclonal, are available for some fungi. Immunochemical staining can facilitate the identification of atypical fungal elements and the detection of small numbers of organisms. It can also assist with the diagnosis of mixed infections. Currently under investigation are a number of techniques that involve specific binding of DNA probes to the nucleic acid of the fungal agent either directly on the slide (in situ hybridization) or in a test tube.

In addition to specifying the source of the specimen and its time of collection, it is important to provide information on any underlying illness, recent travel or previous residence abroad, any animal contacts and the patient’s occupation if considered relevant. This information will help the laboratory to anticipate which fungal pathogens are most liable to be involved and permit the selection of the most appropriate test procedures. In addition, the laboratory must be informed if there are particular risks associated with the handling of the specimen, for instance if the patient has hepatitis or human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)infection.

If the patient does not have a productive cough, a sputum sample may be induced by introducing nebulized saline into the bronchial tree. It is recommended that at least three samples of sputum be submitted for microscopic examination and culture whenever a fungal infection is suspected: 24-h collections of sputum are not suitable for mycological investigation. In immunocompromised patients, the most useful procedures for collection of lower respiratory tract specimens are bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL)or a bronchial wash.
