Examples of "zygomycosis"
"Mucormycosis" and "zygomycosis" are sometimes used interchangeably. However, zygomycota has been identified as polyphyletic, and is not included in modern fungal classification systems. Also, while zygomycosis includes Entomophthorales, mucormycosis excludes this group.
It is especially useful for the identification of Mucor and the causative agents of zygomycosis.
"C. coronatus" is the causative fungal agent of chronic rhino facial zygomycosis. Chronic rhinofacial zygomycosis is a painless swelling of the rhinofacial region that can cause severe facial disfigurement. Rhinofacial zygomycosis caused by "C. coronatus" has been reported in humans, horses, dolphins, chimpanzees and other animals. In addition to the rhino facial zygomycosis cases,"C. coronatus" is also pathogenic to mosquitoes "Culex quinquefasciatus" and "Aedes taeniorhyncus", to the Guadaloupean parasol ant "Acromyrmex octospinosus", to root maggots "Phorbia brassicae", as well as to aphids and termites. The vast majority of human cases of rhino facial zygomycosis caused by "C. coronatus" have occurred in central and west Africa, with a few cases having been reported in Colombia, Brazil and the Caribbean. Veterinary cases have been reported throughout the United States and Australia as well as other parts of the world.
Zygomycosis has been described in a cat, where fungal infection of the tracheobronchus led to respiratory disease requiring euthanasia.
Zygomycosis has been found in survivors of the 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami and in survivors of 2011 Joplin, Missouri tornado.
Black bread mold has a cosmopolitan distribution. It is capable of causing opportunistic infections of humans (zygomycosis). It also causes "Rhizopus" soft rot in white potatoes.
Pathogenic Zygomycosis is caused by species in two orders: Mucorales or Entomophthorales, with the former causing far more disease than the latter. These diseases are known as "mucormycosis" and "entomophthoramycosis", respectively.
Zygomycosis is the broadest term to refer to infections caused by "bread mold fungi" of the zygomycota phylum. However, because zygomycota has been identified as polyphyletic, and is not included in modern fungal classification systems, the diseases that zygomycosis can refer to are better called by their specific names: mucormycosis (after Mucorales), phycomycosis (after Phycomycetes) and basidiobolomycosis (after Basidiobolus). These rare yet serious and potentially life-threatening fungal infections usually affect the face or oropharyngeal (nose and mouth) cavity. Zygomycosis type infections are most often caused by common fungi found in soil and decaying vegetation. While most individuals are exposed to the fungi on a regular basis, those with immune disorders (immunocompromised) are more prone to fungal infection. These types of infections are also common after natural disasters, such as tornadoes or earthquakes, where people have open wounds that have become filled with soil or vegetative matter.
species are opportunistic agents of human zygomycosis (fungal infection) and can be fatal. "Rhizopus" infections may also be a complication of diabetic ketoacidosis. This widespread genus includes at least eight species.
Most Mucoralean species are saprotrophic, and grow on organic substrates (such as fruit, soil, and dung). Some species are parasites or pathogens of animals, plants and fungi. A few species cause human and animal disease zygomycosis, as well as allergic reactions.
Most species of 'Mucor' are unable to infect humans and endothermic animals due to their inability to grow in warm environments close to 37 degrees.Thermotolerant species such as "Mucor indicus" sometimes cause opportunistic, and often rapidly spreading, necrotizing infections known as zygomycosis.
"Saksenaea vasiformis" usually causes cutaneous or subcutaneous zygomycosis, but can also cause primary sinusitis and rhinocerebral disease. Cutaneous diseases by S. vasiformis present red blisters. with necrotic ulcers or raised red to purple lesions. Infections by "S. vasiformis" are normally localized and indolent, but in some cases infection is disseminated or becomes highly invasive, and these cases were all fatal.
An opportunistic human pathogen, it is one causative agent of zygomycosis (more properly mucormycosis). The RA 99-880 strain, which was isolated from a fatal infection, had its genome sequenced by the Broad Institute in 2004–2005. However more recent analyses indicate that this strain actually belongs to a very closely related species, "Rhizopus delemar".
On June 10, 2011, it was announced that a rare fungal infection, zygomycosis, had been noted to cause at least eight serious cases of wound infection among the injured survivors, confirmed by reports to the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services.
Absidia is a genus of fungi in the family Cunninghamellaceae. The best-known species is the pathogenic "Absidia corymbifera", which causes zygomycosis, especially in the form of mycotic spontaneous abortion in cows. It can also cause mucormycosis in humans. It is an allergenic that could cause mucorosis in individuals with low immunity. It usually infects the lungs, nose, brain, eyesight and skin. "Absidia" spp. are ubiquitous in most environments. They are often associated with warm decaying plant matter, such as in compost heaps.
Infection is usually acquired via traumatic implantations associated with soil or decaying vegetable matter (such as from accidental injuries or insect bites). Invasive soft tissue infections can develop on burns or wounds which are contaminated by soil. Unlike other zygomycosis, the affected host is usually otherwise immunocompetent. "Apophysomyces elegans" infections present most commonly as necrotizing fasciitis, osteomyelitis, and angioinvasion. Systemic and secondary renal and bladder infections have also been reported.
"Rhizomucor pusillis" can lead to Zygomycosis in humans. It causes necrosis of infected tissues and pen neural invasion. It is an incredibly rare disease often found in the lungs of patients with a weakened immune system and can often lead to a fatal outcome. It occurs in patients with hematological malignancies and diabetes mellitus as well as leukemia. "Rhizomucor pusillis" can cause infections in non-human animals as well. In animals the fungus is found in the kidneys and can lead to mucormyotic abortion.
Chase is administrating the deferoxamine, but her alveoli sacks rip and she receives no oxygen. House and the team discuss this and they come to the conclusion she has fungus, but they do not know which one. House tells them to go broad, and Cameron suggests "Aspergillus". He tells them to give her the anti-fungal for that. Wilson accuses House of running the paternity test from the beginning. Cameron comes in and says Leona's lungs collapsed and they are treating for the wrong fungus. He goes to Leona and asks if she lied to Dylan about where she was. After hesitating twice, she blinks, signaling she did. House discovers that the patient had gone to a recording studio before she experienced the hallucinations. She had inhaled mold in the studio, contracting zygomycosis.
Focusing on human infection, "C. coronatus" mainly infects healthy adults, especially males. The pattern of a "C. coronatus" infection is similar to infections caused by other members of the Zygomycota. The rhinofacial zygomycosis pattern of infection can manifest when "C. coronatus" spores enter the nasal cavities through inhalation or through trauma of the nasal cavities. The infection starts in the nose and invades the subcutaneous tissue but rarely disseminates because the agent is not angio-invasive. Following invasion of the subcutaneous tissue, the characteristic rhinofacial masses develop. These masses are bumpy and uneven, and overtime they end up reducing the size of the individuals' nasal passages by pushing on the septum, causing symptoms such as nasal discharge, chronic sinusitis and complete obstruction of nasal passages. Chronic, long standing infection can lead to morbidity. A possible course of treatment is the surgical removal of the masses. Currently, there are no prevention strategies or specific risks identified for "C. coronatus" infection, and antifungal prophylaxis is not warranted. Reduction in disease prevalence and morbidity hinges on early detection and treatment.
