9) The manufacturer recommends the test not to be employed as the exclusive diagnostic tool in patients with histoplasmosis, since cross-reactions may occur with blastomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, penicilliosis
, sporotrichosis, coccidioidomycosis (less frequently), and aspergillosis (rarely).
1 A study like this on Penicilliosis
is extremely important to analyse this life threatening opportunistic infection that is prevalent among the people living with HIV for better management in the diversity of the local population.
A comparative analysis of the clinical and laboratory characteristics in disseminated penicilliosis
marneffei in patients with and without human immunodeficiency virus infection.
9 The disseminated MC lesions should be differentiated from cryptococcosis, penicilliosis
, histoplasmosis, verruca vulgaris, pneumocystosis and atypical mycobacterial infections.
, recurrent bacteremic nontyphoidal salmonellosis, and burkholderiosis associated with acquired immunodeficiency due to autoantibody against gamma interferon.
2 From our observation patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection are prone to various opportunistic fungal infections namely penicilliosis
histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis.
And the fungus causing the disease penicilliosis
in people with compromised immune systems doesn't really belong in the genus Penicillium at all.
Systemic infections including pneumocystosis, histoplasmosis, and penicilliosis
are also in the differential diagnosis of masses in the intestine, especially in immunocompromised patients, and they might look similar microscopically.
Mycosis is the growth of a mold fungus on a human host, which can cause infectious diseases such as aspergillosis and penicilliosis
(Jacob et al.
Despite widespread reports of penicilliosis
in South-East Asia (19) and India (20), none was identified in our series.
Penicillium marneffei is a dimorphic intracellular opportunistic fungus causing a systemic disease, penicilliosis
marneffei, in both immunocompetent and immunocompromised patients (1-3).
Serodiagnosis of histoplasmosis, paracoccidioidomycosis and penicilliosis
marneffei; current status and future trends.
