ABSTRACT: Use of the paraffin baiting technique allowed isolation of various casual agents from 13 of 14 clinically suspected and microscopically identified actinomycetomas, while only 8 of those were isolated by conventional culture in Sabouraud's dextrose agar medium. The baiting technique has been previously applied for isolation of various Nocardia species from soil or sputum samples. The present study revealed that a wide rage of causal agents can also be isolated by this technique from grains of actinomycetomas.
