Abstract

Klebsiella pneumoniae is stained weekly with hematoxylin and eosin, moderately with periodic acid Schiff (PAS), and strongly by the Warthin-Starry method. Staining by the Warthin-Starry method, however, takes more than one hour. Therefore, we developed a new procedure for rapid identification of K. pneumoniae in paraffin sections of the lung under a fluorescence microscope.
