Utility of real-time PCR for the detection of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis DNA in the diagnosis of imported paracoccidioidomycosis.

Abstract

An increase in immigration from endemic regions has resulted in a number of cases of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) being imported into Spain. A molecular diagnostic technique based on real-time PCR was developed for the detection of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis DNA in both culture and patients' clinical samples. A Molecular Beacon probe was used, labelled… (More)
