Prueba de esputo

La muestra de esputo se obtiene tosiendo profundamente y expulsando el material que viene de los pulmones dentro de un contenedor para muestras. Esta muestra es transferida a un portaobjetos y examinada bajo el microscopio. Si el resultado es positivo, esto indica que hay una infección micótica en los pulmones.Prueba de esputo
