  • Erythema Nodosum following Nocardia Infection: A Case Report. [Case Reports]
    Medicina (Kaunas). 2022 Dec 19; 58(12)Li S, Ji B, … Huang Y
  • Cutaneous nocardiosis is a rare bacterial infection that can result in various dermatologic manifestations such as actinomycetoma, lymphocutaneous infection, superficial skin infection, and secondary infection due to hematogenous dissemination. We report on a Chinese patient with erythema nodosum-like exanthema, possibly secondary to nocardiosis. Our diagnosis for this patient was based on the cl…
  • Eumycetoma Caused by Madurella pseudomycetomatis in a Captive Tiger (Panthera tigris). [Journal Article]
    J Fungi (Basel). 2022 Dec 09; 8(12)Orlandi M, Giglia G, … Abramo F
  • A captive-kept adult male tiger presented with a large cutaneous and subcutaneous mass on the thigh with a fistula. During sedation, multiple nodules were detected and samples for a histopathological exam were collected. Histologically, granulomatous panniculitis and dermatitis were seen around dense aggregates of pigmented fungal hyphae, and a diagnosis of phaeohyphomycosis was made; considering…
  • Epidemiologic Aspects of Mycetoma in Africa. [Review]
    J Fungi (Basel). 2022 Nov 29; 8(12)Develoux M
  • Mycetoma is a chronic, disabling infection caused by fungi or actinomycetes that affects the disadvantaged rural populations of arid tropical regions. The identification of etiological agents is long, difficult, and often imprecise or unsuccessful. Recently developed molecular methods can be used to identify causal agents at the species level. However, diagnosis can only be implemented in special…
  • A prospective study of the clinical profile of hemoptysis and its correlation with radiological and microbiological findings. [Journal Article]
    Int J Mycobacteriol. 2022 Oct-Dec; 11(4):394-399.Kaur H, Pandhi N, Kajal NC
  • CONCLUSIONS: Hemoptysis of any volume implies a life-threatening process, which mandates immediate evaluation and treatment. It is evident that the etiological spectrum of hemoptysis is continuously changing, and more sophisticated investigations, better imaging techniques, bronchoscopic tools, availability of newer techniques in the developing world, and changing patterns of diseases, all contribute to these changes. Identification of the etiology, and localization of the bleeding site, is essential for the efficient management of hemoptysis.
  • An overview of mycetoma and its diagnostic dilemma: Time to move on to advanced techniques. [Review]
    Indian J Dermatol Venereol Leprol. 2022 Oct 12 [Online ahead of print]Husain U, Verma P, … Gupta P
  • The neglected tropical disease mycetoma can become extremely devastating, and can be caused both by fungi and bacteria; these are popularly known as eumycetoma and actinomycetoma respectively. The classical triad of the disease is subcutaneous swelling, multiple discharging sinuses and the presence of macroscopic granules. The present study aims to highlight the existing diagnostic modalities and…
  • Histopathological Diagnosis of Eumycetoma With Paraspinal Sinuses: A Rare Case Report. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2022 Sep; 14(9):e29634.Sonone PP, Hiwale KM
  • Mycetoma, well known as "Madura foot," is a long-standing granulomatous infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. Causative organisms are filamentous fungi (eumycetes) and bacteria (actinomycetes). It characteristically presents with firm woody swelling, discharging sinuses with grains (containing the causative organism). Diagnosis in suspected cases can be made by microbiological evaluation…
  • Updated Review on Nocardia Species: 2006-2021. [Review]
    Clin Microbiol Rev. 2022 12 21; 35(4):e0002721.Traxler RM, Bell ME, … McQuiston JR
  • This review serves as an update to the previous Nocardia review by Brown-Elliott et al. published in 2006 (B. A. Brown-Elliott, J. M. Brown, P. S. Conville, and R. J. Wallace. Jr., Clin Microbiol Rev 19:259-282, 2006, https://doi.org/10.1128/CMR.19.2.259-282.2006). Included is a discussion on the taxonomic expansion of the genus, current identification methods, and the impact of new technology (i…
  • Cytomorphology of Deep Mycoses in Dogs and Cats. [Review]
    Vet Clin North Am Small Anim Pract. 2023 Jan; 53(1):155-173.Dehghanpir SD
  • The purpose of this review is to familiarize clinical pathologists and clinicians with the cytomorphologic features associated with deep mycoses in dogs and cats. The goals are to develop a more unified approach to the description and interpretation of fungal cytomorphology and to facilitate the categorization of fungi that do not produce unique morphologic structures in tissue.
  • The estimated burden of fungal diseases in Mali. [Review]
    J Mycol Med. 2022 Sep 22; 33(1):101333.Doumbo SN, Cissoko Y, … Denning DW
  • Mali is a developing country facing several health challenges with a high rate of tuberculosis (TB) and a moderate HIV infection burden. Little is known or done about fungal diseases, yet they represent a significant public health problem in certain populations. The aim of this study was to estimate the national burden of fungal disease, and summarize data, diagnostic and treatment gaps. We used …
