FERNANDEZ ANDREU, Carlos Manuel et al. Contributions of the Mycology Laboratory at Pedro Kouri Tropical Medicine Institute to the development of the specialty in Cuba. Rev Cubana Med Trop [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.3, pp.1-18. ISSN 0375-0760.

In the framework of the 80th anniversary of Pedro Kouri Tropical Medicine Institute, a succinct presentation is provided of the most relevant activities in the fields of diagnosis, research and teaching so far performed by the Mycology Laboratory at the Institute. Thirty-eight years after its founding, the Laboratory continues to be one of the few places in Cuba devoted to this field and recognized for its scientific and technical achievements, which no doubt essentially respond to the national health status, without neglecting the regional and global environment. All the results presented are endorsed by over 100 publications and scientific works, which is evidence of the quality and rigor of the work done. May this paper be a tribute to the founder of Pedro Kouri Tropical Medicine Institute and all the scientists who have brought prestige to its name throughout these years.

Keywords : mycology; mycosis; mycosis laboratory diagnosis; histoplasmosis; cryptococcosis; candidiasis; dermatophytosis.
