Abstract

Using specific antibodies and the peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique, we were able to demonstrate a variety of fungal organisms in smears and sections of formaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue. The procedure is simple, fast, and accurate and may be used as an alternative to, or in conjunction with, cultural methods to identify fungi specifically.
