Meeting's Aim and Scope:It is our great pleasure to announce that we have come to organize the next CentralEuropean Summer Course on Mycology (www.cesc.hu), which will once again take place inSzeged, Hungary, from 06 – 11, July 2018. Throughout the years, the conference seriesbecame more and more successful thanks to both the invited lecturers and the interactivestudents. Therefore, next year, we would like to maintain the high quality and content of thisevent, thus we ’d like apply for a financial support to be able to celebrate the 10th yearsCourses&Workshops

This study aimed to assess the susceptibility profile of Aspergillus isolates, specifically looking for azole resistance. ITS and β‐tubulin DNA sequencing was performed on 228 sequential clinical isolates. Broth microdilution susceptibility testing was performed for all isolates. A. fumigatus represented 74% of the isolates followed by A. flavus (12%). Nine A. fumigatus isolates from 9 different patients showed high MIC values to at least one azole, but cyp51A polymorphisms were detected in only 6 isolates and none correlated with known resistance mutations. The most troubling observation was that the minimum inhibi...

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2018 Source:Plant Science Author(s): Kanniah Rajasekaran, Ronald J. Sayler, Christine M. Sickler, Rajtilak Majumdar, Jesse Jaynes, Jeffrey W. Cary Aspergillus flavus is an opportunistic, saprophytic fungus that infects maize and other fatty acid-rich food and feed crops and produces toxic and carcinogenic secondary metabolites known as aflatoxins. Contamination of maize with aflatoxin poses a serious threat to human health in addition to reducing the crop value leading to a substantial economic loss. Here we report designing a tachyplesin1-derived synthetic peptide AGM182 and...

Publication date: Available online 21 February 2018 Source:The Lancet Neurology Author(s): Stefan Schwartz, Dimitrios P Kontoyiannis, Thomas Harrison, Markus Ruhnke Fungal infections of the CNS are challenging to treat and their optimal management requires knowledge of their epidemiology, host characteristics, diagnostic criteria, and therapeutic options. Aspergillus and Cryptococcus species predominate among fungal infections of the CNS. Most of these fungi are ubiquitous, but some have restricted geographical distribution. Fungal infections of the CNS usually originate from primary sites outside the CNS (eg, fungal pneu...

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 ...
