Acid-fastness is a physical property of certain bacterial and eukaryotic cells, as well as some sub-cellular structures, specifically their resistance to decolorization by acids during laboratory staining procedures. Once stained as part of a sample, these organisms can resist the acid and/or ethanol-based decolorization procedures common in many staining protocols, hence the name acid-fast This stain uses carbol-fuchsin to stain the lipid walls of acid fast organisms such as M. tuberculosis. The most commonly used method is the Ziehl-Neelsen method, though there is also a Kinyoun's method. A modification of this stain is known as the Fite stain and has a weaker acid for supposedly more delicate M. leprae bacilli The cytology pattern and number of AFB on ZN stain depends on the patient's immune status, and in cases where FNB produces only caseous necrosis the percentage showing AFB on the ZN stain may be as low as 7%. 64 M. avium complex especially may yield histiocytes and some neutrophils in a watery background with a variable number of AFB in HIV. Gram-positive acid-fast Nocardia brasiliensis bacteria using a modified Fite-Faraco stain. 80% of cases of Nocardiosis show clinical features of invasive pulmonary infection, disseminated disease, or brain abscess; 20% show cellulitis. In the United States an estimated 500 - 1,000 new cases of Nocardiosis infection occur annually Last updated on June 11th, 2021. Ziehl-Neelsen (ZN) method of acid-fast staining technique is used to stain Mycobacterium species including M. tuberculosis, M. ulcerans, and M. leprae and nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM). Detection of acid-fast bacilli (AFB) in stained and acid-washed smears examined microscopically may provide the initial bacteriologic evidence of the presence of.

Reference Drury, R.A.B. and Wallington, E.A., (1980) Carleton's histological technique Ed. 5 Oxford University Press, Oxford, UK Ziehl-Neelsen staining is a type of acid-fast stain, first introduced by Paul Ehrlich. Ziehl-Neelsen staining is a bacteriological stain used to identify acid-fast organisms, mainly Mycobacteria.It is named for two German doctors who modified the stain: the bacteriologist Franz Ziehl (1859-1926) and the pathologist Friedrich Neelsen (1854-1898) Many AFB are seen. This is an extreme example, but illustrates the point. The exact details of ZN staining and decolorization vary between laboratories. We often see fewer bacilli with a ZN stain than with a Fite stain, but it is unusual to see the total lack of staining of M. leprae with the ZN stain as in this case
Smear microscopy is the simplest and quickest currently available procedure to detect Acid Fast Bacilli (AFB) in clinical specimens. Most common staning technique involve classic Ziehl-Neelsen (ZN) staining method or one of it's variants. Now a days, these methods have been supplanted by more sensitive Auramine-Rhodamine Fluorescence staining technique, also called Truant method for acid.

Acid-fast stains or other procedures discussed later are necessary for demonstrating the bacilli, which are not visible in hematoxylin and eosin-stained preparations. Acid-fast stains include the Ziehl-Neelsen stain (Fig. 11.9), the Kinyoun stain, and the Fite stain
This prospective study evaluates the ability of Fite-Faraco staining (FF staining) and multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) over hematoxylin and eosin staining (H and E staining) and Ziehl-Neelsen staining (ZN staining). and FF staining for detection of acid-fast bacilli (AFB). And the other part was subjected for DNA extraction and. The Wade-Fite staining technique is a less common special staining useful in Histopathology. It is the modification of Ziehl-Neelsen Staining Method to demonstrate Mycobacterium leprae in tissue sections, which is much less acid and alcohol fast than the tubercle bacilli..

Acid-fast staining was originally pioneered by a scientist named Paul Ehrlich in the year 1882. Later, it was modified by Ziehl and Neelson in 1883. Thus, acid-fast staining is also called Ziehl Neelson staining. It is a type of differential staining method used to distinguish between the acid-fast and non-acid fast bacteria Acid-Fast Stain- Principle, Procedure, Interpretation and Examples. It is the differential staining techniques which was first developed by Ziehl and later on modified by Neelsen. So this method is also called Ziehl-Neelsen staining techniques. Neelsen in 1883 used Ziehl's carbol-fuchsin and heat then decolorized with an acid alcohol, and. Fite-Faraco Staining Protocol for Leprosy Bacilli .

The ZN stain was performed by a very good laboratory, and no AFB were seen in this section sent to us. They also sent a positive control slide (M. tuberculosis) in which AFB were clearly stained Gram stains, AFB stain, and bacterial cultures had negative results. Microscopy revealed extensive scleral necrosis without classic granuloma formation (Figure 1B and C). Results for tissue Gram stain and stains for AFB (Ziehl-Nielson and Fite stains) were negative. Immunohistochemical staining results were positive for herpes simplex virus type 1 A skin smear is a test in which a sample of material is collected from a tiny cut in the skin and then stained for M. leprae, an acid-fast bacillus. Skin smears or biopsy material that show acid-fast bacilli with the Ziel-Neelsen stain or the Fite stain can diagnose multibacillary leprosy
AFB smears and cultures may be negative. M. leprae organisms are very sensitive to acid-alcohol decolorization and Ziehl Neelsen stain may be falsely negative. Analysis of skin biopsies with a Fite stain (a modified tissue AFB stain) is more sensitive and can be diagnostic with appropriate clinical history C, Fite stain of skin biopsy (×1000).

A 30-year-old man presented to the Hansen outpatient department with swelling and ulceration of toes for 2 months. Sections were stained with Haematoxylin and Eosin stain (H & E stain) to study morphology, and modified Fite Faraco stain to identify acid fast bacilli (AFB). AFB was graded according to Ridley scale of 0 to 6+ as Bacillary Index of Granuloma (BIG). The biopsy assessments were done using a standardised set of definitions for histological.
When the diagnosis of Hansen's disease is suspected, the physician should request a special acid-fast stain (Fite's method) to identify the bacillus because the bacteria may lose its acid-fast. ROUTINE STAINS Bug Stains • PAS: Periodic acid Schiff • GMS: Grocott's methanamine silver • AFB: Ziehl-Neelsen stain, Wade-Fite • Gram: Brown and Brenn • Warthin-Starry • Giems After fixation and staining with Fite's acid fast stain, the bacilli are counted on a calibrated microscope to ascertain the number of acid fast bacilli (AFB) per foot pad . Although this method is reliable if done properly, it is time consuming and labor intensive, requiring a large number of animals; therefore, it is very costly Finding of acid-fast bacilli (AFB) by Fite Faraco stain is helpful but more often than not, bacilli are not seen in pauci-bacillary cases and histo-pathologic findings need to be correlated with the clinical picture. Reaction vs Relapse: Relapse is easy to detect if solid staining bacilli can be demonstrated in slit skin smears or in tissue.
Atypical mycobacterial infections are infections caused by a species of mycobacterium other than Mycobacterium tuberculosis, the causative bacteria of pulmonary TB and extrapulmonary TB including cutaneous TB; and Mycobacterium leprae, the cause of leprosy. Atypical mycobacteria may cause many different types of infections, which are divided. detect without special staining. Cyclospora cayetanensis has also been reported to be acid fast. Modified acid -fast stains are recommended for demonstrating these organisms. Unlike the Ziehl-Neelsen modified acid -fast stain, the modified Kinyoun acid -fast stain does not require heating the reagents used for staining (1-4). II.
