OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare wet mount-, Giemsa stain-, acridine orange fluorescent stain-, cultivation- and polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based approaches to establish which method or combination of methods was most effective in the laboratory diagnosis of trichomoniasis. STUDY DESIGN Out of 200 investigated patients with various(More)
Human infection by Dirofilaria repens in Serbia has been increasing steadily. The first case was reported in 1971, presented in the form of a single subcutaneous nodule on the back of a young boy. As established by a literature search, eight additional cases were reported until mid-2001. The most frequent site of infection was subcutaneous tissue, with the(More)
Today is known that genus Malassezia includes seven species: M. furfur, M. sympodialis, M. obtusa, M. globosa, M. restricta, M. sloofflae and M. pachydermatis, but role of each of the species in the pathogenesis of disease has not been elucidated yet, so further laboratory isolation and identification are necessary. We report the first case of isolation of(More)
Dermatophytes are moulds that produce infections of the skin, hair and nails of humans and animals. The most common forms among these infections are onychomycosis and tinea pedis affecting 20% of world population. These infections are usually chronic. The treatment of dermatophytoses tends to be prolonged partly because available treatments are not very(More)
INTRODUCTION When protozoa enter the blood stream or tissues they can often survive and replicate because they adapt to the resisting natural host defenses. The interaction of immune system with infectious organisms is a dynamic interplay of host mechanisms aimed at eliminating infections and microbial strategies designed to permit survival in the face of(More)
Four indoor swimming pools in recreation centres in the city of Belgrade were tested to the presence of free living amoebae (swimming pool water, step smears, smears under the showers). As the consequences of people's infections caused by these amoebae are now well know, the goal of our investigation was to prove their possible presence, and to establish(More)
INTRODUCTION Babesiosis is caused by intraerythrocytic parasites of the genus Babesia, which is a common animal infection worldwide. This protozoa requires both a competent vertebrate and a nonvertebrate host (Ixodes sp. etc.) to maintain the transmission cycle. HUMAN BABESIOSIS Human babesiosis is predominantly caused by Babesia microti (rodent-borne(More)
Fungi are important causes of human infections, especially systemic mycoses. Pathogenic fungi have many complex mechanisms of resistance to antifungal drugs. In this article, information about the cellular, genetic and clinical factors contributing to antifungal-drug resistance, and their diagnostic and epidemiologic characteristics are reviewed.(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate and determine the value of a novel, simple and inexpensive selective medium for isolation of yeasts of Candida spp. - ground red hot pepper agar (GRHP). The study compared GRHP and Sabouraud dextrose agar (SDA), an insufficiently selective medium routinely used for primary isolation of yeasts. The comparison was(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate correlation between clinical symptoms and diagnosis of trichomoniasis in women. 200 women were included in the study. Swabs were taken from all patients from the posterior vaginal fornix. Each sample was examined using the following five methods: wet mount, Giemsa stain, acridine orange fluorescence stain,(More)
