BACKGROUND Routine medical microbiology diagnostics relies on conventional cultivation followed by phenotypic techniques for identification of pathogenic bacteria and fungi. This is not only due to tradition and economy but also because it provides pure culture needed for antibiotic susceptibility testing. This review focuses on the potential of High(More)
Rapid, easy, economical and accurate species identification of yeasts isolated from clinical samples remains an important challenge for routine microbiological laboratories, because susceptibility to antifungal agents, probability to develop resistance and ability to cause disease vary in different species. To overcome the drawbacks of the currently(More)
A case report of ventriculoperitoneal shunt infection caused by Candida lusitaniae in a 6-year-old patient with cerebral astrocytoma and obstructive hydrocephalus is presented briefly with emphasis on the course of antifungal treatment. Seven isolates recovered subsequently from the cerebrospinal fluid were studied retrospectively. To confirm identity,(More)
We evaluated the suitability of various primers for the RAPD (randomamplifiedpolymorphicDNA) accurate species identification and strain typing ofAspergillus clinical isolates. Five primers described previously were tested for their discriminatory power in threeAspergillus species (A. fumigatus, A. niger agg. andA. flavus — 23 clinical isolates and 2(More)
