RE: It's in the dirt!

So did you get this sample to test because they were trying to work out what was wrong with the patient or because he was dead already? Why the East-West divide on distribution, and what drugs kill fungi?
Sorry, if you didn't create interesting posts, I wouldn't have as many questions!

Yeah, guess doc wanted to see what was wrong with patient. It’s not hard to assume flu at first due to symptoms.

The fungus only grew in first quadrant of the agar plate.

And no, I don’t know what drugs are used to these.

Which makes me wonder what triggered him to get the tests done as the symptoms would have been so similar...As for the treatment, I'll log into MiMs and have a look :-)

Anyway, best wishes for the upcoming Thanksgiving and I'll be looking forward to the table decoration post and to see if you can surpass last year's wonderful effort :-)

It was a general respiratory culture. So, we just so happened to pick it up before a more specific fungal culture was ordered.

I work during Thanksgiving this year, so there may not be flashy stuff. I might have some stuff for Christmas.
