Test Information

Role of special stains in the diagnosis of Pneumocystis carinii infection from bronchial washing specimens in patients with the acquired immune deficiency syndrome. In 76% of the cases, the Diff-Quik stain was positive; it was the easiest and most rapid of the special stains used. Pneumocystis jiroveci is one of the major microbial pathogens associated with opportunistic pulmonary infections in patients receiving immunosuppressive therapy or with immune deficiencies. Presently, the most common means to diagnose Pneumocystis jiroveci infection is by microscopic detection of the organisms in specimens such as bronchoalveolar lavage, open lung biopsy tissue, induced sputum and transtracheal aspirate.
