Brooke Army Medical Center, 3551 Roger Brooke Drive, San Antonio, TX, USA.

Patients with toxic epidermal necrolysis, a condition that causes full thickness epidermal necrosis that affects over 30% of the skin surface and mucosal membranes, often develop comorbid infections throughout the recovery of the disease [1]. While most commonly these are related to a bacterial source, infections due to viral, mycobacterial, and rarely fungal organisms occur. We present a case of a patient who developed a deep cutaneous fungal infection caused by Trichosporon asahii and discuss the management. Read More

Nangui Abrogoua University, Laboratory of Biotechnology and Food Microbiology, Department of Food Science and Technology (UFR-STA), 02 BP 801 Abidjan 02, Cote d'Ivoire.

The increase of infections due to non-Candida albicans species made it very necessary to conduct adequate characterization to be able to identify the species of Candida isolated from traditional fermented foods. In this study, based on their hue on Candida Chromogenic Agar medium, a total of 136 yeast strains were isolated from tchapalo and bangui. Molecular identification based on PCR-RFLP of internal transcribed spacers of rDNA (ITS) and sequencing of the ITS and the D1/D2 regions allowed us to assign these isolates to seven species: Candida tropicalis, Candida inconspicua, Candida rugosa, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Kluyveromyces marxianus, Hanseniaspora guilliermondii, Trichosporon asahii.

Department of Pharmacy, Universidade Estadual do Centro-Oeste/UNICENTRO, Rua Simeão Camargo Varela de Sá 03, Guarapuava, PR, 85040-080, Brazil.

Amphotericin B (AmB) is one of the most used drugs for the treatment of systemic fungal infections; however, the treatment causes several toxic manifestations, including nephrotoxicity and hemolytic anemia. Chitosan-coated poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA) nanoparticles containing AmB were developed with the aim to decrease AmB toxicity and propose the oral route for AmB delivery. In this work, the antifungal efficacy of chitosan-coated PLGA nanoparticles containing AmB was evaluated in 20 strains of fungus isolates from patients with vulvovaginal candidiasis (01 Candida glabrata and 03 Candida albicans), bloodstream infections (04 C.

[Histopathological Diagnosis of Invasive Fungal Infections in Formalin-Fixed and Paraffin-Embedded Tissues in Conjunction with Molecular Methods].

Med Mycol J 2018 ;59(1):E7-E18

Department of Surgical Pathology, Toho University School of Medicine.

The main objective of this study was to evaluate the relationship between histopathology, polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and in situ hybridization (ISH) for the identification of causative fungi in formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded (FFPE) tissue specimens. Since pathogenic fungi in tissue specimens can be difficult to identify morphologically, PCR and ISH have been usually employed as auxiliary procedures. However, little comparison has been made on the sensitivity and specificity of PCR and ISH using FFPE specimens. Read More

Fatal disseminated Trichosporon asahii fungemia in a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia and a morbilliform eruption.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Jan 20;35(1):e86-e87. Epub 2017 Dec 20.

Department of Dermatology, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA.

Trichosporonosis is a rare, life-threatening, opportunistic fungal infection that affects immunocompromised individuals with neutropenia, particularly those with underlying hematologic malignancies. We present the case of a 10-year-old boy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who developed a diffuse, morbilliform eruption in the setting of fever and pancytopenia. He was found to have Trichosporon asahii fungemia with widespread visceral dissemination, and his condition rapidly deteriorated despite treatment. Read More

Blastoschizomyces capitatus pulmonary infections in immunocompetent patients: case report, case series and literature review.

Epidemiol Infect 2018 01 4;146(1):58-64. Epub 2017 Dec 4.

Department of Internal Medicine,John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County,Chicago, IL,USA.

Blastoschizomyces capitatus is an uncommon opportunistic yeast associated with infections in neutropaenic patients secondary to haematological malignancies, with a special predilection for the lungs. Globalisation and population migration impact on the epidemiology of infection with this organism but its effect on the immunocompetent population has rarely been described. We present here a case report, an overview of 11 other cases published between 2000 and 2016, and a comprehensive literature review of Blastoschizomyces pneumonia in the non-immunocompromised.

Rare fungal infectious agents: a lurking enemy.

F1000Res 2017 31;6:1917. Epub 2017 Oct 31.

Infectious Diseases Research Laboratory, 4th Department of Internal Medicine, School of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece.

In the expanding population of immunocompromised patients and those treated in intensive care units, rare fungal infectious agents have emerged as important pathogens, causing invasive infections associated with high morbidity and mortality. These infections may present either as or as breakthrough invasive infections in high-risk patients with hematologic malignancies receiving prophylactic or empirical antifungal therapy or in patients with central venous catheters. Diagnosis and treatment are challenging. Read More

In vivo pathogenicity of Trichosporon asahii isolates with different in vitro enzymatic profiles in an immunocompetent murine model of systemic trichosporonosis.

Med Mycol 2018 Jun;56(4):434-441

Departamento de Microbiología and Departamento de Histología, Facultad de Medicina, Universidad Autónoma de Nuevo León, Monterrey, México.

Trichosporon asahii is an opportunistic yeastlike fungus that colonizes the gastrointestinal and respiratory tracts and human skin. Although it is an important cause of disseminated infections by non-Candida species, there are a few reports related to its virulence factors and their possible role in in vivo pathogenicity. We developed a murine model of disseminated trichosporonosis in immunocompetent mice for the evaluation of the in vivo pathogenicity of 6 T. Read More
