Next-generation sequencing for hypothesis-free genomic detection of invasive tropical infections in poly-microbially contaminated, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples - a proof-of-principle assessment.

BMC Microbiol 2019 Apr 8;19(1):75. Epub 2019 Apr 8.

Institute for Microbiology, Virology and Hygiene, University Medicine Rostock, Schillingallee 70, 18057, Rostock, Germany.

Background: The potential of next-generation sequencing (NGS) for hypothesis-free pathogen diagnosis from (poly-)microbially contaminated, formalin-fixed, paraffin embedded tissue samples from patients with invasive fungal infections and amebiasis was investigated. Samples from patients with chromoblastomycosis (n = 3), coccidioidomycosis (n = 2), histoplasmosis (n = 4), histoplasmosis or cryptococcosis with poor histological discriminability (n = 1), mucormycosis (n = 2), mycetoma (n = 3), rhinosporidiosis (n = 2), and invasive Entamoeba histolytica infections (n = 6) were analyzed by NGS (each one Illumina v3 run per sample). To discriminate contamination from putative infections in NGS analysis, mean and standard deviation of the number of specific sequence fragments (paired reads) were determined and compared in all samples examined for the pathogens in question.

Fungal extracts stimulate solitary chemosensory cell expansion in noninvasive fungal rhinosinusitis.

Int Forum Allergy Rhinol 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Division of Rhinology, Department of Otorhinolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, PA.

Background: Solitary chemosensory cells (SCCs) are rare epithelial cells enriched in nasal polyps and are the primary source of interleukin-25 (IL-25), an innate cytokine eliciting T-helper 2 (Th2) immune response. Although it is proposed that SCCs are stimulated by antigens released by upper airway pathogens, the exogenous triggers of human SCCs remain elusive. We studied patients with noninvasive fungal rhinosinusitis to determine whether extracts of Aspergillus fumigatus and Alternaria alternata stimulate SCC proliferation as an early event in type 2 inflammation.

Rie R Yotsu

Trop Med Infect Dis 2018 Nov 14;3(4). Epub 2018 Nov 14.

School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health, Nagasaki University, Nagasaki 852-8102, Japan.

Integration of neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) into the public health agenda has been a priority in global health for the last decade. Because a number of these diseases share not only the geographical distribution, but also a common feature which is skin involvement, bringing together a sub-group of 'skin NTDs' is one way forward to promote further integration among NTDs. With these diseases, which include leprosy, Buruli ulcer, yaws, mycetoma, lymphatic filariasis, and leishmaniasis, patients may be left with life-long deformities and disabilities when diagnosis and treatment are delayed.

Mycetoma: The Spectrum of Clinical Presentation.

Trop Med Infect Dis 2018 Sep 4;3(3). Epub 2018 Sep 4.

The International Foundation for Dermatology, London W1P 5HQ, UK.

Mycetoma is a chronic infection, newly designated by the World Health Organization (WHO) as a neglected tropical disease, which is endemic in tropical and subtropical regions. It follows implantation of infectious organisms, either fungi (eumycetomas) or filamentous bacteria (actinomycetomas) into subcutaneous tissue, from where infection spreads to involve skin, bone and subcutaneous sites, leading to both health related and socioeconomic problems. In common with other NTDs, mycetoma is most often seen in rural areas amongst the poorest of people who have less access to health care. Read More

Opportunistic Fungal Infections in Small Animals.

J Am Anim Hosp Assoc 2018 Nov/Dec;54(6):327-337. Epub 2018 Oct 1.

From the Department of Veterinary Clinical Sciences (A.D., A.G., J.T.) and Department of Pathobiological Sciences (N.W-U.), Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Opportunistic fungal infections have long been recognized as rare causes of disease in immunocompetent dogs and cats. Recently, the escalating use of multiagent immunosuppression protocols (especially those that include cyclosporine) has resulted in an increased number of patients with opportunistic fungal infection encountered by small animal practitioners and has altered the typical case phenotype. Based on histologic and cytologic features such as pigmentation, hyphal diameter, and distribution in tissue, these opportunistic mycoses can be placed into categories such as phaeohyphomycosis, hyalohyphomycosis, and eumycotic mycetoma.

Department of Skin and VD, Shree Krishna Hospital, Karamsad, Anand, Gujarat, India.

Atypical presentations of cutaneous tuberculosis (TB) are not uncommon and are frequently overlooked in clinical practice, leading to late diagnosis and increased morbidity. Strong clinical suspicion, histopathology, and response to antituberculous treatment are required for its diagnosis. In today's era, when TB threatens to burst into pandemics again, early diagnosis and treatment are very important for the control of disease. Read More

P Verma A Jha

Clin Exp Dermatol 2019 Mar 28;44(2):123-129. Epub 2018 May 28.

Department of Dermatology, Kaya Skin Clinic, Chandigarh, India.

Mycetoma caused by either filamentous fungi (eumycotic) or bacteria (actinomycotic) has recently been recognized by the World Health Organization as a neglected tropical disease. Although mycetoma is preventable and treatable, especially in the early stages, it carries high morbidity and a huge socioeconomic burden. Skin and subcutaneous tissue is affected, with a classic presentation of hard woody swellings, discharging sinuses and presence of grains (containing the causative organism). Read More

Mycetoma, one of the badly neglected tropical diseases, it is a localised chronic granulomatous inflammatory disease characterised by painless subcutaneous mass and formation of multiple sinuses that produce purulent discharge and grains. If untreated early and appropriately, it usually spread to affect the deep structures and bone resulting in massive damage, deformities and disabilities. It can also spread via the lymphatics and blood leading to distant secondary satellites associated with high morbidity and mortality. Read More
