Jagdish Prasad Meena, Aditya Kumar Gupta, Manisha Jana, Rachna SethIndian Journal of Medical Microbiology 2019 37(1):109-112 Invasive fungal infections (IFIs) are an important cause of morbidity and mortality in paediatric leukaemias. Antifungal combinations to treat these patients are being explored. Fourteen children with leukaemias and IFIs were treated with a combination of antifungal agents at our centre. The first antifungal was amphotericin-B in 13 children and voriconazole in one child. In view of no improvement and clinical deterioration, in nine patients, voriconazole was added as the second antifungal agent and...

Regulatory B cells (Bregs) are a B cell subset that plays a suppressive role in immune responses. The CD19+CD1dhiCD5+ Bregs that can execute regulatory functions via secreting IL-10 are defined as B10 cells. Bregs suppress autoimmune and inflammatory diseases, whereas they exacerbate infectious diseases caused by bacteria, viruses, or parasites. Notably, the molecular mechanisms regulating the development and functions of Bregs are still largely unknown. Furthermore, the biological impact of Bregs in fungal infection has not yet been demonstrated. Here, we compared the gene expression profiles of IL-10-producing and -nonpr...
ConclusionLocalized subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis caused byP. crystallina was reported in a patient with a homozygousCARD9 mutation. Physicians should be aware of the possibility of aCARD9 mutation in seemingly healthy patients with unexplainable phaeohyphomycosis.
CONCLUSION: This systematic review suggests that SFP in end stage liver disease patient is associated with high mortality both in the hospital and at 1-mo, and that antifungal therapy is currently underutilized. PMID: 31388401 [PubMed]
Conclusions: Increasing the povidone-iodine exposure time during the donor cornea recovery process decreased the rate of positive donor corneal rim fungal cultures (P = 0.001), positive donor corneal rim bacterial cultures (P = 0.04), and postoperative fungal infections (P = 0.06).
