Importance of selective media for recovery of yeasts from clinical specimens.

Abstract

We compared the recovery of yeasts from clinical specimens cultured on routine bacteriological media to the recovery of yeast from specimens cultured on a selective fungal medium (Sabouraud agar). The use of Sabouraud agar was especially important in cases of mixed cultures, since in such cases yeast was recovered on bacteriological media from only 50% of… (More)
