Laboratory Diagnosis of Fungal Infections

The Last Course


Slide 24

September 2011

Well, I looked at some further areas of the slide and noticed that there were some conidiophores that didn’t look like Acremonium and they weren’t produced in the same way. So you have to look at the entire slide when you try to make an identification. That’s one important thing to remember about all mycology slides is to look at the whole slide and get a consensus of what you see. Well, in this particular slide, I noticed that the conidia were elongated and you don’t see that with Acremonium. And there were none of those in clusters like I saw in that part of the slide over there.
