  • Introduction

    Mycoses are common worldwide and their incidence continues to increase. Infections or colonization by fungi of tissue occur in both healthy and immunocompromised patients. These cosmopolitan mycoses afflict an extensive range of mammals, including humans but rarely concern birds. Animal mycoses can be easily transmitted to humans. Routine, conventional laboratory diagnostics of mycoses (“the gold standard”) involve direct microscopic examination of clinical specimens followed by in vitro culture techniques. But its specificity and sensitivity depends on the researchers’ experience and diagnostic procedure is time-consuming. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based techniques and other modern techniques as MALDI-TOF shorten the diagnostic procedure and generally have high sensitivity and specificity compared to conventional methods.

    Aims and Scope:

    1. The development of knowledge about new possibility of mycoses diagnostics
    2. The familiarizing with modern techniques applied for medical diagnoses
    3. Publishing of result of validated modern techniques.
