hyalohyphomycosis

hyphomycosis

 [hi″fo-mi-ko´sis]
any infection caused by an imperfect fungus of the form-class Hyphomycetes; the group has been divided into hyalohyphomycosis and phaeohyphomycosis based on the color of the mycelium and wall of the fungus.

(hī'ă-lō-hī'fō-mī-kō'sis),
A general term for infection in tissue caused by a fungus with hyaline (colorless) mycelium. If the mold can be identified, disease should be given a specific name, such as aspergillosis or fusariosis.

/hy·a·lo·hy·pho·my·co·sis/ (hi″ah-lo-hi″fo-mi-ko´sis) any opportunistic type of hyphomycosis caused by mycelial fungi with colorless walls.

hyalohyphomycosis

[hi′älohi′fomiko′sis]
a hyphomycosis caused by mycelial fungi with colorless walls, most of which are opportunistic. It usually occurs as a result of steroid therapy, indwelling catheters, immunosuppressive drugs, or cytotoxins.

(hī'ă-lō-hī'fō-mī-kō'sis)
An infection caused by a fungus with hyaline (colorless) mycelia in tissue, usually with a decrease in body resistance due to surgery, indwelling catheters, steroid therapy, or immunosuppressive drugs or cytotoxins.
