Example text

Practically speaking, most etiologic agents are identified in the laboratory on the basis of structures formed by the anamorphic form of the fungus. Although many mitosporic fungi have known teleomorphs, most require two mating strains to produce the sexual form. These are referred to as heterothallic. A few clinically significant fungi require only one strain to produce the teleomorph, and these are considered homothallic. Microascus cinereus and Pseudallescheria boydii, cited in the preceding text, are examples of homothallic fungi.

Figure in color on CDROM]. allows a presumptive diagnosis of C. neoformans. The ability of these fungal stains to highlight the appearance of the organisms does, however, come with some disadvantages, as the stains mask the presence of pigment in the walls of the pigmented fungi (Fig. 5), and neither the host inflammatory reaction nor the viability of the tissue in Fig. 5. Pigmented brown sclerotic bodies seen in a case of chromoblastomycosis. The pigment would be masked in a GMS stain. H&E. [See color plate 5, following p.

2. Often, presumptive identifications are made first via histopathology, with the definitive identification being delayed until the isolated fungus is identified in the laboratory (Fig. 13). Even if the etiologic agent cannot be identified, the tissue forms seen may result in the recognition of the disease and allow initiation of treatment. For example, granules are associated with mycetoma, muriform cells with chromoblastomycosis, and oval yeast cells and pseudohyphae with candidiasis. The fungal forms seen in tissue are extremely important in diagnosing the disease, even if they cannot be used to identify the specific fungus causing the disease.
