Mycoses B35-B49 >
Dermatophytosis B35- >
infections due to species of Epidermophyton, Micro-sporum and Trichophyton
A disease of the scalp that may affect the glabrous skin and the nails
and is recognized by the concave sulfur-yellow crusts that form around
loose, wiry hairs. Atrophy ensues, leaving a smooth, glossy, thin,
paper-white patch. This type of disease is rare in the United States
and more frequently seen in the middle east, africa, southeastern
europe, and other countries bordering the mediterranean sea
Candidiasis B37- >
A condition in which candida albicans, a type of yeast, grows out
of control in moist skin areas of the body. It is usually a result
of a weakened immune system, but can be a side effect of chemotherapy
or treatment with antibiotics. Thrush usually affects the mouth
(oral thrush); however, rarely, it spreads throughout the entire body.
Infection with a fungus of the genus candida. It is usually a
superficial infection of the moist areas of the body and is generally
caused by candida albicans. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Infection with a fungus of the genus candida; usually a superficial
infection of the moist areas of the body and is generally caused by
candida albicans; includes chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis, cutaneous
candidiasis, oral candidiasis (thrush), and monilial vaginitis.
Coccidioidomycosis B38- >
A fungal infection caused by coccidioides immitis. Affected individuals
usually have mild flu-like symptoms. However, pneumonia and systemic
involvement with the formation of abscesses may develop as complications
of the disease.
Infection with a fungus of the genus coccidioides, endemic to the
southwestern United States. It is sometimes called valley fever but
should not be confused with rift valley fever. Infection is caused by
inhalation of airborne, fungal particles known as arthroconidia, a form
of fungal spores. A primary form is an acute, benign, self-limited
respiratory infection. A secondary form is a virulent, severe, chronic,
progressive granulomatous disease with systemic involvement. It can be
detected by use of coccidioidin.
Infection with a fungus of the genus coccidioides, species c. Immitis;
primary form is an acute, benign, self limited respiratory infection
due to inhalation of spores and varying in severity; secondary form is
a virulent, severe, chronic, progressive granulomatous disease with
Valley fever is a disease caused by a fungus (or mold) called coccidioides.
The fungi live in the soil of dry areas like the southwestern United States
Anyone exposed to the fungus can get the infection. The highest risk is for
eople whose jobs expose them to soil dust. These include construction
workers, agricultural workers, and military forces doing field training.
The infection cannot spread from person to person.valley fever is often
mild, with no symptoms. If you have symptoms, they may include a flu-like
illness, with fever, cough, headache, rash and muscle aches. Most people
get better within several weeks or months. A small number of people may
develop a chronic lung or widespread infection.valley fever is diagnosed
by testing your blood, other body fluids, or tissues. Many people with
the acute infection get better without treatment. In some cases, doctors
may prescribe antifungal drugs for acute infections. Severe infections
require antifungal drugs.
Histoplasmosis B39- >
A disease caused by the fungus histoplasma capsulatum. It primarily
affects the lungs but can also occur as a disseminated disease that
affects additional organs. The acute respiratory disease has symptoms
similar to those of a cold or flu and it usually resolves without
treatment in healthy individuals. The disseminated form is generally
fatal if untreated.
A kind of fungal infection
Histoplasmosis is a disease caused by a fungus (or mold.) the fungus
is common in the eastern and central United States. It grows in soil
nd material contaminated with bat or bird droppings. You get infected
by breathing the fungal spores. You cannot get the infection from
someone else.histoplasmosis is often mild, with no symptoms. If you
do get sick, it usually affects your lungs. Symptoms include feeling
ill, fever, chest pains, and a dry cough. In severe cases,
histoplasmosis spreads to other organs; this is called disseminated
disease. Disseminated disease is more common in infants, young
children, seniors, and people with immune system problems.tests for
histoplasmosis include blood or urine tests and tissue samples.
Chest x-rays and ct scans may also help to diagnose it. Mild cases
usually get better without treatment. Treatment of severe or chronic
cases is with antifungal drugs. Centers for Disease Control and
Infection resulting from inhalation or ingestion of spores of the
fungus of the genus histoplasma, species h. Capsulatum. It is worldwide
in distribution and particularly common in the midwestern United States.
Infection resulting from inhalation or ingestion of spores of the
fungus of the genus histoplasma; worldwide in distribution and
particularly common in the midwestern United States.
Blastomycosis B40- >
A fungal infection caused by inhalation of spores of blastomyces
dermatitidis. It presents with flu-like symptoms including fever,
chills, cough, pleuritic chest pain and myalgias. It may lead
to a chronic granulomatous pulmonary infection and disseminate
to other anatomic sites including skin, nervous system and bones.
A fungal infection that may appear in two forms: 1, a primary
lesion characterized by the formation of a small cutaneous nodule
and small nodules along the lymphatics that may heal within several
months; and 2, chronic granulomatous lesions characterized by thick
crusts, warty growths, and unusual vascularity and infection in the
middle or upper lobes of the lung.
Infection caused by fungi of the genus blastomyces.
Paracoccidioidomycosis B41- >
A mycosis affecting the skin, mucous membranes, lymph nodes,
and internal organs. It is caused by paracoccidioides brasiliensis.
It is also called paracoccidioidal granuloma. Superficial resemblance
of p. Brasiliensis to blastomyces brasiliensis (blastomyces) may
A systemic fungal infection caused by paracoccidioides brasiliensis
that is most often seen in immunocompromised patients. It affects
the mucous membranes, lymph nodes, lungs and bones.
Sporotrichosis B42- >
The commonest and least serious of the deep mycoses, characterized
by nodular lesions of the cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues. It is
caused by inhalation of contaminated dust or by infection of a wound.
Aspergillosis B44- >
An infectious fungal disease that occurs most often in the skin,
ears, nasal sinuses, and lungs of people with suppressed immune
Aspergillosis is a disease caused by a fungus (or mold) that is
very common in the environment. There are different kinds of
aspergillosis. One kind is allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
(also called abpa). Symptoms of abpa include wheezing and coughing.
Abpa can affect healthy people but it is most common in people
ith asthma or cystic fibrosis.another kind is invasive aspergillosis,
which invades and damages tissues in the body. It usually affects
the lungs, but it can also cause infection in other organs and
spread throughout the body. It affects people who have immune
system problems, such as people who have had a transplant, are
taking high doses of steroids, or getting chemotherapy for some
cancers.your doctor might do a variety of tests to make the diagnosis,
including a chest x-ray, ct scan of the lungs, or examining tissues
for signs of the fungus. Treatment is with antifungal drugs.
Cryptococcosis B45- >
An acute or chronic, localized or disseminated infection by
cryptococcus neoformans. Sites of involvement include the lungs,
central nervous system and meninges, skin, and visceral organs.
Infection with a fungus of the species cryptococcus neoformans.
Disease condition caused by species of aspergillus and marked by
inflammatory granulomatous lesions in the skin, ear, orbit, nasal
sinuses, lungs, and sometimes in the bones and meninges.
Infections with fungi of the genus aspergillus.
Zygomycosis B46- >
Any infection due to a fungus of the zygomycota phylum. The disease
typically involves the rhino-facial-cranial area, lungs, gastrointestinal
tract, skin, or less commonly other organ systems. The infecting fungi
have a predilection for invading vessels of the arterial system,
causing embolization and subsequent necrosis of surrounding tissue.
Infection in humans and animals caused by fungi in the class
zygomycetes. It includes mucormycosis and entomophthoramycosis.
The latter is a tropical infection of subcutaneous tissue or
paranasal sinuses caused by fungi in the order entomophthorales.
Phycomycosis, closely related to zygomycosis, describes infection
with members of phycomycetes, an obsolete classification.
Mycetoma B47- >
A chronic granulomatous inflammation involving the deep dermis
and the subcutaneous tissues. It is caused by fungi and actinomycetes.
A chronic progressive subcutaneous infection caused by species of
fungi (eumycetoma), or actinomycetes (actinomycetoma). It is
characterized by tumefaction, abscesses, and tumor-like granules
representing microcolonies of pathogens, such as madurella fungi
and bacteria actinomycetes, with different grain colors.
Unspecified mycosis B49- >
An infection caused by a fungus.
An infection caused by eukaryotic heterotrophic organisms that
live as saprobes or parasites, including mushrooms, yeasts, smuts,
molds, etc. They reproduce either sexually or asexually, and have
life cycles that range from simple to complex. Filamentous fungi
refer to those that grow as multicellular colonies (mushrooms
Disease caused by a fungus.
If you have ever had athlete's foot or a yeast infection, you can
blame a fungus. A fungus is actually a primitive vegetable. Mushrooms,
mold and mildew are examples. Fungi live in air, in soil, on plants and
in water. Some live in the human body. Only about half of all types of
fungi are harmful.some fungi reproduce through tiny spores in the air.
You can inhale the spores or they can land on you. As a result, fungal
infections often start in the lungs or on the skin. You are more likely
to get a fungal infection if you have a weakened immune system or take
antibiotics.fungi can be difficult to kill. For skin and nail infections,
you can apply medicine directly to the infected area. Oral antifungal
medicines are also available for serious infections.
The presence of fungi circulating in the blood. Opportunistic fungal
sepsis is seen most often in immunosuppressed patients with severe
neutropenia or in postoperative patients with intravenous catheters and
usually follows prolonged antibiotic therapy.
