Host defenses in subcutaneous mycoses.
Clin Dermatol. 2012 Jul-Aug; 30(4):382-8.CD

Abstract

Subcutaneous mycoses include diverse clinical syndromes, characterized by invasion of the skin and subcutaneous tissue by saprobic fungi. Individuals living in rural areas constantly suffer lesions or trauma; however, only a few of them develop disease. In this contribution, we describe recent advances in the understanding of the virulence of these organisms, focusing on the most prevalent infections, sporotrichosis, chromoblastomycosis, and mycetoma. Although these infectious diseases are considered neglected tropical diseases, modern molecular techniques have been able to identify the etiologic agents and observe variations in the former monolithic concept of the species, which was based mostly on morphologic characteristics. The complete genetic characterization of the causative agents, along with that of their host, will help in the understanding of the factors on which the development of these infections depends.
