Contamination of smears with “sergentella spiroides”

Hellsten, Hans LU ; Linell, Folke and Rausing, Alf (1970) In Scandinavian Journal of Infectious Diseases 2(3). p.223-224
Abstract

“Sergentella spiroides” is a filamentous fungal spore which can incidentally contaminate smears. In Romanowsky stainings the spores are confusingly like microfilariae and it is important to recognize the phenomenon to avoid diagnostic mistakes. © 1970, Informa UK Ltd. All rights reserved.
