Abstract

Although accurate and rapid diagnosis of fusariosis is now required, morphological similarities among molds make it difficult to histologically differentiate Fusarium spp. from other molds. In this chapter, we present our in situ hybridization (ISH) technique as a valuable tool to identify Fusarium spp. and emphasize the usefulness of the technique.
