Unusual host inflammatory responses may be elicited by certain pathogens, including reactions with an inherent capacity for misdiagnosis as neoplasia. Current, emerging, re-emerging and/or recently recognized pathogens or infections of major significance include carbapenem-resistant gram-negative bacterial infections, Ebola virus disease, measles, Mycobacterium lepromatosis as a second aetiological agent of leprosy, and Emergomyces africanus infection among those living with HIV/AIDS.
