[Histonet] Use of polarization microscopy in the diagnosis of pneumocystis p neumonia

From:"O'Brien, Sue"

I was wondering if anyone else had tried Dr. Teisa An's method (published in
the March 2004 issue of Arch. Pathol. Lab. Med.)? It utilizes pepsin, and
then the PCP can be visualized via polarization. For those that have tried
it, what do you think? It is very easy to do the procedure, but the results
seem a little different (for someone used to looking at silver stained
material). Thank-you,
