Background: Cryptococcus gattii-induced cryptococcosis is an emerging infectious disease of humans and animals with worldwide distribution and public health importance due to its significant morbidity and mortality rate. The present study aimed to report a case of pulmonary infection by C. gattii molecular type VGII in State of São Paulo, Brazil. Read More

Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii are closely related pathogenic fungi. Cryptococcus neoformans is ecologically widespread and affects primarily immunocompromised patients, while C. gattii is traditionally found in tropical climates and has been reported to cause disease in immunocompetent patients.

VGII/AFLP6 genotype, also considered to be a cryptic species within Cryptococcus gattii, is an emerging pathogen and always related to higher incidence of C. gattii infection. Here, a polymerase chain reaction-based method with specific primers was developed to rapid differentiation of this emerging pathogen. Read More
