Parasitic fungi

The parasitic fungi (synonym parasitic fungi) - a special group of lower plants, devoid of chlorophyll, parasitizing on living tissues of plants, animals and humans. Parasitic fungi cause different diseases (see the Actinomycosis, Fungal diseases of the skin, Candida, Herpes, Mikozy, Microsporia, Trichosperma, Trichophytosis, Favus, Athlete's foot, Eritrazma), animals and plants.
Parasitic fungi are found in the pathological substrate (in damaged hair, skin cells, pus, sputum, and so on) under the microscope after their processing with a 10% solution of caustic soda, sodium hydroxide or glycerin. To obtain pure cultures of parasitic fungi material taken from the patient, sowing the nutrient medium. To determine pathogenicity parasitic fungi infect laboratory animals. For the purpose of diagnosis of fungal diseases applied allergic and serological response to antigens of inactivated fungi.
