This section presents an extensive chart of organisms and their classic features. The chart includes former names, the antimicrobic test method to be used, drugs of choice for empiric therapy, and the extent of identification. The therapeutic information in the chart is not intended to guide therapy by a clinician, but rather to inform laboratorians of the options available. The section presents updated information, particularly regarding viruses, from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site at www.cdc.gov. Information on yeasts and fungi is taken from the Doctor Fungus website.
