The isolation of fusarium sporotrichioides from a diabetic foot wound sample and identification
MetadataShow full item record
Fusaria are major opportunist pathogens for immunocompromised patients. In this study, it was concluded as a result of both conventional and molecular identification techniques that the isolate obtained from the patient’s diabetic foot was Fusarium sporotrichioides. T-2 toxin production of the pathogen was investigated using HPLC and no toxin determined. In laboratory diagnosis, it must not be thought that Fusaria are solely an environmental contaminant.
