To work up or not to work up? With the increasing number of patients who are critically ill or have immunosuppressive diseases, and the ubiquity and diversity of fungi present in the environment, the mycology laboratory may encounter uncommonly pathogenic fungi as etiologic agents of disease. The first program in this series will discuss how to assess the clinical relevance of fungi from clinical specimens. The second program will discuss when the lab should identify and perform susceptibility testing on fungi isolated from clinical specimens.
At the conclusion of this program, the participant will be able to:
Review fungi commonly isolated in culture from various clinical specimens.
Discuss the relevance of these isolates and whether it is necessary to perform identification and susceptibility testing on the isolates.
