In recent years, there has been an increase of pathogens findings in tissues. This presentation will discuss some of the reasons for the increase of these pathogens in the past few years. The presentation will also will give an overview of why some of these pathogens are invasive and the complications associated with some of these diseases. Due to the histology department being tasked to produce slides that are of highest quality to identify these pathogens, a discussion of good histology techniques and stains that can help identify these pathogens will be reviewed.
- Discuss the reasons for increase in bacterial and fungal infections.
- Identify some invasive bacterial and fungal infections, and complications associated with the infections.
- Discuss how good histology, specifically special stains and IHC, have helped to identify these pathogens.
