  • Phylogenetic placement of Itajahya: An unusual Jacaranda fungal associate. [Journal Article]
    IMA Fungus 2015; 6(2):257-62Marincowitz S, Coetzee MP, … Wingfield MJ
  • Itajahya is a member of Phallales (Agaricomycetes), which, based on the presence of a calyptra and DNA sequence data for I. rosea, has recently been raised to generic status from a subgenus of Phallus. The type species of the genus, I. galericulata, is commonly known as the Jacaranda stinkhorn in Pretoria, South Africa, which is the only area where the fungus is known outside the Americas. The co…
  • A new species of Phallus from São Tomé, Africa. [Journal Article]
    Mycologia 2009 Jul-Aug; 101(4):545-7Desjardin DE, Perry BA
  • A new lignicolous species of phalloid fungi, discovered recently on the western African island of São Tomé, is described as Phallus drewesii. A comprehensive description, photographs and comparison with phenetically similar species are provided.
  • [Acute higher funghi mushroom poisoning and its treatment]. [Review]
    Presse Med 2003; 32(30):1427-35Saviuc P, Flesch F
  • The various mushroom poisoning syndromes are summarised together with elements underlining uncertainty and lack of knowledge. For each of the classical syndromes concerned, classified in delays inferior or superior to 6 hours, the toxins and their mechanisms of action, the main mushrooms responsible, the symptoms and their treatment are all presented.
  • Current applications of plasmapheresis in clinical toxicology. [Review]
    Nephrol Dial Transplant 2003; 18 Suppl 5:v56-8Nenov VD, Marinov P, … Nenov DS
  • The clinical applications of plasmapheresis are rapidly increasing in number and scope. This trend is also observed in the application of plasmapheresis as a method of detoxification in clinical toxicology. Because of a lack of large controlled series, the rationale for using plasmapheresis must be confirmed in each type of intoxication by evidence of effective clearance, as well as by high plasm…
  • Our experience in the treatment of acute Amanita phalloides poisoning. [Journal Article]
    Folia Med (Plovdiv) 1999; 41(4):30-7Iliev Y, Andonova S, Akabaliev V
  • CONCLUSIONS: The acute mushroom poisoning cases in adults comprise 7.01% of the total acute poisoning caseload. The phalloid poisoning accounts for 9.26% of the total number of patients with mushroom poisoning admitted for treatment. The application of contemporary diagnostic-therapeutic protocol lowers the hospital lethality rate from phalloid poisoning to 40%. There were no statistically significant differences in the compared parameters between the subgroups of patients with favorable and lethal outcome and between the subgroups of men and women--most probably due to the small sample. In order to lower the incidence and mortality rate from phalloid mushroom poisoning the authors recommend preventive health education on the problem, targeting the population at risk and the introduction of contemporary diagnostic and treatment methods--determining the amatoxins, intravenous application of Silibinin and liver transplantation.
