When H&E stained sections are examined under a fluorescent microscope, fluorescence of several fungus is observed. Theoretically, this phenomena might help in the identification of cutaneous and widespread fungal infections without the time-consuming wait involved with specific stains. To ascertain the practical applicability of this approach, 76 cases of superficial and deep fungal infections as well as 3 cases of protothecosis were examined.
