Talaromyces marneffei is one of the endemic mycoses prevalent in South-East Asian region. The infection, which was once considered to be opportunistic infection in HIV-positive patients, is establishing foothold in transplant and immunocompetent population. We report a case of a 41-year-old post-renal transplant female with a travel history to Assam two years back presenting with a subcutaneous lesion on right side of scalp associated with pain and blurring of vision in right eye.

ABSTRACT null null An increased number of patients is at risk of Candida spp. bloodstream infection (CBSI) in modern medicine. Moreover, the rising of antifungal resistance (AR) was recently reported. All consecutive CBSI occurred in our Hospital (consisting of 1,370 beds) between 2015 and 2018, were reviewed. For each case, Candida species, AR pattern, ward involved and demographic data of patients were recorded. Overall, 304 episodes of CBSI occurred, with a median (q1:first-,q3:third quartile...

Abstract null null Chromoblastomycosis is a chronic subcutaneous mycosis caused by traumatic inoculation of dematiaceous fungi especially in tropical and subtropical areas. Cyphellophora genus include melanized fungi reported as etiological agents of skin and nail infections. We report a 60-year-old male from the south of Mexico with a 40-year history of chromoblastomycosis caused by Cyphellophora laciniata. The isolated fungus was identified by sequencing of the internal transcribed spacer regi...

Abstract null null Tropicoporus tropicalis is an environmental basidiomycete that has been implicated in nine cases of cutaneous (n = 7) and pulmonary (n = 2) human infections predominantly in chronic granulomatous disease patients. We report here the first case of keratitis caused by Tropicoporus tropicalis in a 40-year-old immunocompetent patient, who presented with sudden diminution of vision in right eye. Corneal scrapings revealed hyaline, septate hyphae in microscopy and culture showed gro...

Abstract null null In India, Apophysomyces species complex is the second common agent of mucormycosis mainly affecting immunocompetent hosts unlike other Mucorales. It is frequently involved in causing necrotizing cutaneous infections. The present two-year study was planned to investigate the causative role of Apophysomyces spp. in cutaneous necrotizing infections. The tissue samples were processed using standard techniques and in five out of 65 patients, Apophysomyces variabilis was the causati...

Abstract null null Introduction: Brain abscesses (BA) form approximately 8% of intracranial masses in developing and 1-2% in western countries. Fungal BA (FBA) are aggressive and represent a catastrophic manifestation compared to protozoan and bacterial BA. Diagnosis of FBA is rare and usually done postmortem. Objectives: The present retrospective study analyses the clinico-mycological aspects of FBA presented to our neurosurgical services over a period of 38 years, from January 1979 to April 20...

Abstract null null Mucormycosis is a life-threatening disease responsible for a high mortality rate. The disease usually affects immuno-compromised patients. While all sites might be involved, gastrointestinal disease is rare, occurring for 5% to 13% of all mucormycosis cases. We report herein the fifth case of splenic and gastric mucormycosis revealed after gastric perforation and the first case occurring among an immuno-competent patient, and we review all reported cases of splenic mucormycosi...

Abstract null null Candida auris is an emerging yeast pathogen with worldwide distribution and a great propensity for nosocomial spread. Recent reports have warned of the significant emergence of C. auris in several healthcare facilities. In order to stop its nosocomial transmission, use of antiseptics constitutes the first-line lever of action in the fighting against C. auris skin colonization. However, little is known about the efficacy of these products, and moreover no antiseptics are curren...
