Did anyone see a black tongue associated with Staph aureus?
All the medical references mentioned a association with yeast or fungi.
Personally I found 19 print of the subject in Medline from 1982 until 1999.
In this case ther was a fungal infection 6 months ago treated with
antifungal agents. There was also a oesophgic ulcer found treated with
Losec. Now the patient devellops again a black tongue but the only agent
cultured is a Staphylococcus aureus. After 1 week the mycologic cuture is
still negative.
