We report a case of successful treatment of probable invasive pulmonary aspergillosis due to A. lentulus and polymicrobial infection with Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a patient with relapsing granulomatosis with polyangiitis and recent high-dose steroid therapy.

We report a case of primary cutaneous aspergillosis caused by Aspergillus tamarii in an extremely low birthweight infant. The infant was delivered by cesarean section with complications from an intrauterine infection, brain intraventricular hemorrhage, tension pneumothorax and cardiac tamponade. On the 12th day of life, he developed erythematous maceration with erosion on his back. Septate hyphae were detected on two occasions from specimens of the skin lesion. The manifestations of the colony and slide culture showed the characteristics of A. tamarii. The nucleotide sequences of internal transcribed spacer regions of the ...

BLACK mould and damp is a common problem during this time of year and respiratory problems, allergies, and asthma can be a result of infestations. Inhaling tiny bits of mould can also cause a condition called aspergillosis. The NHS explains how best to get rid of mould and damp problems.
Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) is a common complication of immunosuppression. Rapid diagnosis using molecular techniques is essential to improve patient survival. PCR techniques are promising in enhancing Aspergillus detection in blood and respiratory samples. Here, we evaluate for the first time the performances of two commercial Real-Time PCR kits, the A. fumigatus ® Bio-Evolution and the MycoGENIE® A. fumigatus for the detection of A. fumigatus DNA in broncho-alveolar lavage (BAL) from patients with and without IPA.
Publication date: June 2018 Source:Medical Mycology Case Reports, Volume 20 Author(s): Yuuki Ohara, Takahiko Ito, Makoto Ito, Kyoko Yamashita, Shinya Toyokuni A 62-year-old previously healthy male who was a welder/smoker/drinker was admitted to Kani Tono Hospital for severe hypoxemia (Day 0). Initial physical and radiological examinations suggested an acute exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. However, respiratory failure developed rapidly, and he died on Day + 4. Aspergillus fumigatus was identified after his death, and he was diagnosed with invasive pulmonary aspergillosis. The clinical and pathologi...
