Title

Laboratory guidelines for the diagnosis of infections caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae and C. ulcerans.

Author(s)A Efstratiou; RC George
AbstractThese guidelines represent an application of the WHO European Region's maunal for the laboratory diagnosis of diphtheria for laboratories in the UK, but they could be applied to laboratories overseas. the manual was rewritten in response to the re-emergence of diphtheria in eastern Europe and the emergence of other infections caused by Corynebacterium diphtheriae and C. ulcerans in the UK and overseas. The guidelines summarise recommendations and procedures for the microbiological diagnosis of infections caused by toxigenic and non-toxigenic isolates of corynebacteria, with particular reference to C.diphtheriae and C. ulcerans.
