Laboratory diagnosis of blastomycosis

Academic Article

Abstract

  • Other than culture that may take up to 4 weeks, blastomycosis cannot be readily diagnosed by any single procedure. However, using a combination of direct-microscopy, histopathology, culture, and serologic techniques, this rare, yet important, fungal infection can be diagnosed and antifungal therapy instituted when indicated. © 1985 Elsevier Science Publishing Co., Inc.
