Rapid molecular identification of fungal pathogens in corneal samples from suspected keratomycosis cases



Rapid molecular identification of fungal pathogens in corneal samples from suspected keratomycosis cases



Journal of Medical Microbiology 55(Pt 11): 1505-1509



An increase in the incidence of fungal infections has highlighted the need for rapid and precise detection and identification methods in clinical mycology. This report describes the data obtained on corneal samples from 24 patients with suspected keratomycosis using a conventional cultural approach in parallel with PCR amplification and sequencing of the internal transcribed spacers (ITSs) of the rDNA regions.
