A method using immunofluorescence for detection of fungi in bronchial secretions

A method using immunofluorescence for detection of fungi in bronchial secretions

Zeitschrift fur Erkrankungen der Atmungsorgane 160(2): 157-160

In the method described a sharp contrast is produced by the fluorescence of the fungal elements against a dark background, whereas conventional staining methods such as Grocott's or PAS also stain mucus. The presence of antibodies against fungi in the patient's serum can also be demonstrated. Antiserum against human IgG or gamma -globulin with tracer is needed. The method is illustrated with a case of Aspergillus fumigatus infection.
