A Detected (positive) result indicates presence of Pneumocystis jirovecii DNA. It does not rule out the presence of or co-infection with other organisms, and Pneumocystis jirovecii may not be the causative agent of the clinical symptoms.
A Not Detected (negative) result indicates that Pneumocystis jirovecii DNA was not present at a level above the limit of detection. It does not exclude the presence of Pneumocystis jirovecii.
Results should be correlated with clinical presentation and history.
