Pagination or Media Count:
Review of the epidemiology and laboratory diagnosis of the four bronchopulmonary mycoses which occur with appreciable frequency in Switzerland. Emphasis is placed on the importance of microscopic examination of fresh material which should be performed in the clinical laboratory. Coordination of the efforts of clinicians, serologists and mycologists is recommended in order to improve the diagnosis of bronchopulmonary candidiasis. The report lists the sources of available skin-test antigens and the laboratories accepting sera or serological tests, including those for the more important extra-european pulmonary mycoses.
