Introduction to Clinical Mycology

Part 4

Filamentous Fungi

Slide 19

March 2012

Well, in terms of what you might find in the laboratory, this is just a partial list of some of the things that we see in the clinical laboratory. Probably the most common things: Aspergillus fumigatus, Mucor, Rhizopus, Penicillium, Fusarium, Scopulariopsis, Paecilomyces, Acremonium, and you will notice that one of the things that is a problem in mycology is the language and the pronunciation of some of these words. And my philosophy is that as long as somebody understands what you are talking about, and if you happen to mispronounce the name, that is probably alright just as long as you know what you are talking about.
