Understanding KOH Staining, Sputum in Bangalore

What is KOH Staining, Sputum in Bangalore?

KOH (Potassium hydroxide) staining is a simple, non-invasive test that helps to diagnose fungal infections in sputum. A sputum sample is collected and examined for signs of fungal infections under a microscope. A KOH test is recommended for individuals with the symptoms of fungal infections of the lung and immunosuppressive conditions.

A KOH test does not explicitly identify the type of fungus; it only shows that fungus is present. In most cases, knowing the fungus precisely causing the infection may not be necessary. The doctor can make an informed judgment and prescribe treatment.
