Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) is a slowly progressive infection mainly caused by Aspergillus fumigatus, characterized by inflammatory destruction of lung tissue with cavitation, pleural thickening and/or fibrosis, and associated with significant respiratory and constitutional symptoms [1 –3]. CPA usually affects patients with underlying structural airway disease with air-filled cavities or bullae, such as tuberculosis (TB), non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), pneumothorax and sarcoid osis.

"Emergence of azole resistant Aspergillus fumigatus from immunocompromised hosts in India". Antimicrob Agents Chemother. 2018 Jun 11;: Authors: Dabas Y, Xess I, Bakshi S, Mahapatra M, Seth R Abstract This prospective study shows that the rate of azole resistant Aspergillus fumigatus (ARAF) in Indian immunocompromised patient population with invasive aspergillosis (IA) is low, 6/706 (0.8%). This lower rate supports the continued use of voriconazole as the first line of treatment. However, the ARAF in this study exhibited three kinds of unreported cyp51A mutations from India, of which two were...

Authors: Uehara Y, Kasai H, Nakajima T, Tanabe N, Tatsumi K, Yoshino I Abstract Progressive fibrobullous changes in the residual lobes are sometimes observed after lobectomy. Aspergillus osteomyelitis is an uncommon infection that rarely occurs sternally. A 70-year-old man who had undergone lobectomy 12 years earlier was admitted to our hospital for chest pain. He was diagnosed with Aspergillus sternomyelitis based on sternal bone culture after an ultrasound-guided percutaneous needle biopsy. The fibrosis and right residual lung apex volume loss had gradually progressed over 12 years, and therefore, chronic pulmona...

Authors: Ono R, Sato S, Okada S, Kanbe E, Tanaka E, Tamai Y Abstract Vertebral aspergillosis is a rare infectious disease with a high mortality rate. We herein report a 70-year-old woman with acute myelogenous leukemia with myelodysplasia-related changes, nontuberculous mycobacteriosis, and bronchiectasis who presented with a fever and cough. Her clinical symptoms and laboratory test results suggested febrile neutropenia and pneumonia. However, her clinical course was further complicated by lower extremity weakness. Magnetic resonance imaging of the spine showed consolidation contiguously spreading toward the epidu...

[Investigation of Virulence Factors by "Omics" Approaches]. Med Mycol J. 2018;59(2):J35-J40 Authors: Takahashi-Nakaguchi A, Hagiwara D, Takahashi H, Sakai K, Toyotome T, Watanabe A, Kamei K, Gonoi T Abstract  Aspergillus fumigatus is the predominant fungal pathogen responsible for life-threatening systemic infections in humans. Recently developed high-throughput whole genome sequencing (WGS) and RNA-Seq technologies have proven to be powerful tools for systematically investigating pathogenic organisms. In this review, we present new virulence factors obtained through our "omics" r...
