A genus of fungi easily isolated from air and considered to be a common laboratory contaminant and an allergen; occasionally pathogenic in humans.

Al·ter·nar·i·a

(awl-tĕr-nā'rē-ă)
A genus of rapidly growing dematacious fungi, ubiquitous in nature, associated with subcutaneous infections such as phaeohyphomycosis, sinusitis, erosion of the nasal septum, and infections of skin and nails. This fungus is also a common cause of allergic rhinitis and asthma.

Alternaria

(al″tĕr-na′rē-ă)
A genus of fungi of the Dematiaceae family. These fungi cause phaeohyphomycosis. They can also cause onychomycosis, sinusitis, ulcerated cutaneous infections, and keratitis, visceral infections and osteomyelitis in immunocompromised persons. In immunocompetent patients, Alternaria colonizes the paranasal sinuses, leading to chronic hypertrophic sinusitis.

Los mohos son los alergenos mas comunes y Cladosporium junto con Alternaria son considerados los mas predominantes de estos alergenos (Peternel et al., 2004; Erkara et al., 2008; Luo et al., 2016), por lo que es importante conocer la composicion y concentracion de los conidios de los hongos en la atmosfera y su relacion con las variables meteorologicas.
