Abstract

Abstract An indirect immunoperoxidase staining method has been successfully applied to 4% formaldehyde solution tissue sections fixed in and embedded in paraffin for the localization of Sporothrix schenckii and Cryptococcus neoformans without prior trypsinization of tissue sections. A comparison of this method with an analogous immunofluorescence staining technique has been made. (Arch Dermatol 115:433-435, 1979) References 1.
