These staining techniques are beneficial as they are easy to do and have high sensitivity and specificity.6 For rapid identification of fungal pathogens, conventional techniques include 10% KOH and lacto phenol cotton blue wet mounts.8 Gram and Giemsa staining techniques are used for identification of bacteria6 and Modified Ziehl-Neelsen staining for Nocardia identification.9 These staining techniques provide a preliminary diagnosis, when culture results are pending.10
