  • First report of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis infection in fish. [Journal Article]
    Med Mycol 2019de Souza Suguiura IM, Macagnan R, … Ono MA
  • The thermodimorphic fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis is the etiological agent of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM), a deep mycosis endemic in Latin American countries that affects mainly male rural workers. Infection by P. brasiliensis has also been reported in several species of terrestrial animals; however, the capacity of the fungus to infect aquatic organisms is poorly known. The aim of this s…
  • Down-regulation of TUFM impairs host cell interaction and virulence by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep 2019; 9(1):17206Marcos CM, Tamer G, … Fusco-Almeida AM
  • The genus Paracoccidioides consist of dimorphic fungi geographically limited to the subtropical regions of Latin America, which are responsible for causing deep systemic mycosis in humans. However, the molecular mechanisms by which Paracoccidioides spp. causes the disease remain poorly understood. Paracoccidioides spp. harbor genes that encode proteins involved in host cell interaction and mitoch…
  • Paracoccidioidomycosis in a child: exuberant presentation due to the inadvertent use of systemic corticosteroids. [Case Reports]
    An Bras Dermatol 2019; 94(4):470-472Veasey JV, Pessotti NS, Lellis RF
  • Paracoccidioidomycosis is a fungal infection that occurs in immunocompetent patients and are classified into two forms: the acute-subacute form, predominantly in young patients, and the chronic adult form that may present classic ulcerated lesions to rare sarcoid ones. We present the case of a boy whose infection began with sarcoid lesions but, after being mistakenly diagnosed with cutaneous sarc…
  • An autochthonous case of paracoccidioidomycosis in a new area of Ceara State, Northeastern Brazil. [Case Reports]
    Rev Inst Med Trop Sao Paulo 2019; 61:e58Mota MAL, Damasceno LS, … Leitão TDMJS
  • The largest endemic areas of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) in Brazil comprise the humid agricultural regions of the Southeast, South, and, recently, the Midwest and North regions. The Ceara State, located in the Brazilian Northeast region, presents semi-arid climate in most of its territory, characterized by high temperatures, scarce vegetation and low humidity. The objective of the present study …
  • A hidden battle in the dirt: Soil amoebae interactions with Paracoccidioides spp. [Journal Article]
    PLoS Negl Trop Dis 2019; 13(10):e0007742Albuquerque P, Nicola AM, … Silva-Pereira I
  • Paracoccidioides spp. are thermodimorphic fungi that cause a neglected tropical disease (paracoccidioidomycosis) that is endemic to Latin America. These fungi inhabit the soil, where they live as saprophytes with no need for a mammalian host to complete their life cycle. Despite this, they developed sophisticated virulence attributes allowing them not only to survive in host tissues but also to c…
