Nosocomial infections occur widely in the world, most of them were in the poor and developing countries, because those infection
diseases were still the mayor cause of high morbidity and mortality. All microorganisms including fungi may cause nosocomial infection.
The fungal as opportunistic pathogens can threat immunocompromised patients such as neurosurgical patients and HIV/AIDS patients.
The aim of this study was to identify the fungal species found in the neurosurgery and HIV/AIDS rooms at Dr. Wahidin Sudirohusodo
Hospital Makassar. This study was a cross sectional study. The sample was the air in neurosurgery operating theater and HIV/AIDS
ward collected using Micro biology Air Sampler 100. The identification of fungal species using lacto phenol cotton blue stain were done in
Balai Besar Laboratorium Kesehatan Makassar in the period of June up to July 2010. The amount of fungal colonies in the neurosurgery
room was 36 CFU/m3 and the identified fungi were Aspergillus’s glaucus group and Penicillum sp. The amount range of fungal colonies
in HIV/AIDS ward were 102–158 CFU/m3 and the identified fungi were: Aspergillus’s Niger, Aspergillus’s glaucus group and Penicillium
