Absidia

Absidia

 
a genus of perfect fungi; the species A. ramo´sa is found on decaying plants and baked goods and can cause mucormycosis.

Absidia

(ab-sid'ē-ă),
A genus of fungi (family Mucoraceae) commonly found in nature. Thermophilic species survive in compost piles at temperatures exceeding 45°C and may cause mucormycosis (zygomycosis) in humans.

Absidia

/Ab·sid·ia/ (-sid´e-ah) a genus of fungi of the order Mucorales. A. corymbi´fera and several other species may cause mycosis in humans. A. ramo´sa grows on bread and decaying vegetation and causes otomycosis and sometimes mucormycosis.

Absidia

[absid′ē·ə]
a genus of fungi belonging to the class Phycomycetes of the order Mucorales, which currently contains 21 species, most of which are soil-borne. A. corymbifera is the only recognized pathogen of the Absidia species and causes zygomycosis (mucormycosis), but is relatively rare. A. corymbifera is found on decaying plants and baked goods.

Ab·sid·i·a

(ab-sid'ē-ă)
A genus of fungi commonly found in nature. Thermophilic species survive in compost piles at temperatures exceeding 45°C and may cause zygomycosis in humans. A zygomycete, Absidia is differentiated from other members by the presence of rhizoids that are produced between sporangiophores.

Absidia

A genus of fungi that can cause MUCORMYCOSIS. Absidia species may be thermophilic and can survive high temperatures in composting enclosures.

Absidia

a genus of nonseptate fungi in the class Zygomycetes. A. corymbifera (A. ramosa) causes bovine abortion resulting from a severe placentitis. Absidia spp. are also associated with zygomycosis, causing disease of the gastrointestinal tract, and less commonly oral cavity, larynx and subcutaneous tissue.
