Intestinal fungal diseases are often secondary to other diseases, caused by Candida, etc., and can also be caused by thrush or Candida mucosa.

Basic Information

Specialist classification: Digestive examination classification: pathogenic microbiological examination

Applicable gender: whether men and women apply fasting: not fasting

Analysis results:

Below normal:

Normal value:
no

Above normal:

negative:
Negative fungal culture is a normal result.

Positive:
Positive in intestinal mycosis.

Reminder: Do not collect too much feces to avoid having enough specimens for inspection. Normal value

Fungal culture was negative.

Clinical significance

1. Fecal microscopy and culture have certain value for the diagnosis of this disease. However, since the bacteria can survive under normal conditions, this will bring certain difficulties to the diagnosis of the disease. Therefore, it is not possible to rely solely on microscopic examination or culture positive to determine whether there is infection of the bacteria, and must be combined with other test results. Judge.

2, positive in intestinal fungal diseases.

Positive results may be diseases: fungal enteritis considerations

1. Please avoid digging the part of the toilet urine and tap water when collecting; do not place the feces directly on toilet paper or paper towel.

2. To avoid interference with the test results, do not use cotton swabs to dig.

3. Do not collect too much feces to avoid having enough specimens for inspection.

4. If you need to detect fecal occult blood by chemical method, please avoid eating red meat, liver and spinach, cabbage, broccoli and other foods three days before collection to avoid false positive results.

5. If you use the immunological method to detect fecal occult blood, you do not need to limit the type of diet.

6. Because infants and young children are not easy to get enough samples at one time, if they need to be collected separately, please temporarily store the samples in the refrigerator to avoid bacterial growth.

Inspection process

Fungal culture, direct microscopic examination of fecal specimens is usually not easy to determine the species, need to refer to the results of fecal culture, observe the colony morphology, and then pick the colony after staining. Commonly used sand preservation medium and blood agar medium. For biphasic fungi, it is also necessary to culture separately at different temperatures (25 ° C or 37 ° C) in order to observe the morphological changes.

Not suitable for the crowd

Those who do not have an indication for examination should not do this check.

Adverse reactions and risks

Generally no complications and harm.
