Example text

It is often helpful to use a Wood’s light to select infected scalp hairs for laboratory investigation. If none of the hairs give the green fluorescence, which is a feature of some forms of dermatophyte scalp infection, a search should be made for lustreless hairs or stumps, and for hairs broken off at follicle mouths. Hairs should be plucked from the scalp with forceps. Cut hairs without roots are unsuitable for mycological investigation because the infection is usually confined near or below the surface of the scalp.

This recommendation was not intended to apply to long-established disease names, such as aspergillosis, rather it was intended to offer a more flexible approach to nomenclature. There is also much to be said for the practice of grouping together mycotic diseases of similar origins under single headings. One of the broadest and most useful of these collective names is the term ‘phaeohyphomycosis’, which is used to refer to a range of superficial, subcutaneous and systemic infections caused by any brown-pigmented mould that adopts a septate hyphal form in host tissue (see Chapter 25).

Total excision of small cutaneous, subcutaneous or mucosal lesions is often possible. With the exception of H. capsulatum, fungi present in tissue are best recovered when the specimen is minced and not ground. 13 Medical devices A wide range of medical devices, including contact lenses, replacement joints, stents and surgical implants, may be submitted for fungal culture. Most should be submitted in a sterile container and transported and stored at room temperature. 3 17:44 Trim: 229mm X 152mm Chapter 2 Specimens for serological tests Serological tests for dimorphic fungal pathogens are much more helpful if paired or sequential specimens are collected.
