Re: [Histonet] FW: HTL question

From:"Dolores Townsend"

As for a lot of tests, the answer is a bit tricky and confusing, but D
is right: although the pathologist can see something that MIGHT be
fungus on the routine stain, (s)he will ask for a special stain (GMS or
other) to confirm the presence of fungus. Hence, D. Fungi are never
demonstrated with routine procedure. You will need the special stain to
be sure. This is true for most special stains: the pathologist sees
something on the routine stain, but it is not conclusive, so special
stains are needed to confirm the diagnostic.
