    Notes: Abstract The soils of five potted plants cultivated within a hospital were investigated for the presence of fungal opportunistic pathogens of humans. A total of 16 potentially pathogenic species were isolated, including Aspergillus fumigatus at up to 53.5 colony-forming units (CFU) per gram dry soil and Scedosporium apiospermum (Pseudallescheria boydii) at up to 97.0 CFU/g. Other common species included Phialophora verrucosa and Fusarium solani. Scedosporium inflatum, a recently described emerging pathogen, is reported for the first time from an environmental source. The results of this study, in combination with previous case reports linking mycoses to potted plants and available information on the establishment and dispersal of fungal opportunistic pathogens in indoor habitats, indicate that indoor plant soils constitute a serious mycotic hazard to the immunosuppressed patient.

    Notes: Abstract The growth of granular, velvety and cottony strains ofT. mentagrophytes on Sabouraud's cycloheximide, chloramphenicol agar (SCCA) and brain heart infusion agar (BHIA) containing varying concentrations of NaCl showed that as the concentration of NaCl increased above 3 % the growth decreased. On SCCA with NaCl some cottony strains became velvety and some velvety became granular. On BHIA containing NaCl the aerial growth of many strains became glabrous, wrinkled and darkened. The most satisfactory concentrations of NaCl in SCCA that promoted the formation of macroconidia were 3 and 5 %. In BHIA the production of macroconidia was not influenced by NaCl. On SCCA containing 3 % or more of NaCl the morphology of microconidia was usually sub-spherical.

    Notes: Summary A simple easily prepared clear medium consisting of 2% oxgall in 1.8% agar is described. This has proved to be excellent for the rapid identification ofCandida albicans in swabs and cultures, provided that the inoculated area is covered by a coverslip and the incubation temperature period is maintained at 28°C for 24 to 48 hours. No special technical skill is required to prepare this medium. The results presented show thatC. albicans will always produce chlamydospores on this medium if the recommended procedure is followed.

    Notes: Abstract This report concerns the usefulness of two media, brain heart infusion agar (BHIA) and BCP milk dextrose agar in the detection of contamination inT. rubrum andT. mentagrophytes and provides cultural information in the identification of these species.
