Cryptococcus Fungi: The Cause of Cryptococcosis
 
03:14
Cryptococcosis is the disease caused by the fungus known as Cryptococcus. Cryptococcus is a type of fungus that is found in the soil, usually in association with bird droppings. The major species of Cryptococcus that causes illness in human is Cryptococcus neoformans, which is found worldwide. Another less common species that can also cause disease in humans is Cryptococcus gattii. Since 1999, C. gattii has also been found in regions of the Pacific Northwest, particularly in Vancouver Island in British Columbia, and Oregon and Washington in the United States.

✔ Subscribe: https://tinyurl.com/medxclusiveSUB Blog: https://medXclusive.org -------- C. gattii cryptococcosis is a rare infection caused by Cryptococcus gattii, a fungus that lives in soil and in association with certain trees. C. gattii primarily lives in tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world, particularly Australia and Papua New Guinea, but it has also been found in parts of Africa, Asia, Europe, Mexico, and South America. Since 1999, C. gattii has been recognized as causing infections in humans and animals on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and C. gattii infections were first recognized the United States Pacific Northwest (Oregon and Washington) in 2004. A small number of people have also gotten C. gattii infections in other areas of the US, particularly in the Southeast, without a history of travel to Oregon or Washington. People can become infected with C. gattii after breathing in the microscopic fungus from the environment. Infection with the fungus Cryptococcus (either C. gattii or C. neoformans) is called cryptococcosis. Cryptococcosis usually affects the lungs or the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord), but it can also affect other parts of the body. Brain infections with the fungus Cryptococcus are called cryptococcal meningitis. -------- Subscribe to us for Medicine, Preventive Medicine, Board Exams’ HighYield Review (USMLE, NCLEX, MCAT,…), Health Tips, Health Care News, and Patient Awareness.

(Exceptions: candidaemia and mucormyosis). Person to person transmission does not occur.( Excetions: dermatophytes and mucocutaneous candidal infections. There are no specific symptoms orr signs which reliably distinguish fungal from bacterial infections. Typical antibiotics are ineffective. Some risk factors of fungal infections are major hematopoietic stem cell transplant ( particularly first 30 days). Induction chemotherapy or hematological malignancies and solid organ transplation. Any chemotherapy critical illness and mechanical ventilation, indwelling central venous catheter hemodalysis, TPN and recent used for broad spectrum antibiotics and diabetes, intra- abdominal surgery.

Fungi are a natural part of the environment and can be found all around us. Some types of fungi, including those found in our environment and others in mold infested indoor environments can cause infections in some people. This is particularly true with people with a weakened immune system. The following are some of the more well known fungal diseases and the pathogenic fungi that cause them: Aspergillus is a common fungus that can be found in some indoor and outdoor environments. Aspergillosis is the name of the infection caused by Aspergillus. There are several different kinds of aspergillosis. Blastomycosis is a disease caused by the fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis. The fungus lives in moist soil and in association with decomposing organic matter such as wood and leaves. The symptoms of blastomycosis are often similar to flu symptoms. Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by yeasts that belong to the genus Candida. There are over 20 species of Candida yeasts that can cause infection in humans, the most common of which is Candida albicans. Coccidioidomycosis, also called Valley Fever, is an infection caused by the fungus Coccidioides, which lives in the soil of dry, low rainfall areas. It is endemic in many areas of the southwestern United States, Mexico, Central and South America. Cryptococcosis is an infection caused by fungi that belong to the genus Cryptococcus. There are over 30 different species of Cryptococcus, but two species -- Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii cause nearly all cryptococcal infections in humans and animals. Dermatophytes are fungi that cause skin, hair and nail infections. Infections caused by these fungi are also sometimes known as "ringworm" or "tinea." There are many different species of dermatophytes that can cause infection in humans. Two of the most common types are Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton tonsurans, These are just a few things to know about fungal pathogens and Part 2 of this video series will discuss other common fungal pathogens.

Invasive Fungal Infections in the Immunocompromised Host -- Aliyah Baluch, MD.
 
37:33
Dr. Aliyah Baluch focuses on the work-up and treatment of invasive fungal infections in the immunosuppressed patients. Fungal infections have high morbidity and mortality, but can be hard to clinically diagnose. Invasive infections occur in ICU, Diabetes Mellitus, and immunocompromised patients. Dr. Baluch covers both aspects of Candida and non-Candida species infections, including risk factors, symptoms, prognosis, work-up, and treatment in patients with immunosuppressed patients. She includes a review of fungal structure and the mechanism of action of the drug classes used to treat them – Echinocandins, Polyenes, and Triazoles. She covers timelines that indicate which species to expect during each stage of immunosuppression and with different mechanisms of immunosuppression, including differences between stem cell and solid organ transplants. Biomarkers for treatment and international patterns of drug resistance are also discussed.

Maningitis (hindi): its an infection can affects the human brain
 
11:29
Maningitis (hindi): its an infection can affects the human brain. Meningitis is an inflammation (swelling) of the protective membranes covering the brain and spinal cord known as the meninges. This inflammation is usually caused by an infection of the fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Meningitis is usually caused by bacteria or viruses, but can be a result of injury, cancer, or certain drugs. It is important to know the specific cause of meningitis because the treatment differs depending on the cause. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "must watch (funny) - A 2 year old brilliant child....." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YbT-a1xuSKk -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Strain aneuploidy underlies fluconazole resistance in human cryptococcal meningitis
 
09:00
Cryptococcal meningitis (CM) is an opportunistic fungal infection that primarily affects immunocompromised individuals, particularly those with HIV/AIDS. In resource-limited countries, patients often receive antifungal drug fluconazole monotherapy; however, long-term outcomes, even at high doses, are poor. In this episode, Neil Stone and colleagues observed treatment response in a cohort of patients with HIV-associated CM given fluconazole alone or in combination with flucytosine. Patients treated with fluconazole monotherapy had an increase in resistant subpopulations in the CSF; however, combination prevented expansion of resistant populations. Fluconazole-resistant strains had high rates of aneuploidy characterized predominant diploidy of drug efflux pump-containing chromosome 1. Together, these results support combination therapy as a successful strategy for suppressing heteroresistance.

Fungal Pathogens Part 1 of 2
 
02:49
Published on May 23, 2013 Fungi are a natural part of the environment and can be found all around us. Some types of fungi, including those found in our environment and others in mold infested indoor environments can cause infections in some people. This is particularly true with people with a weakened immune system. The following are some of the more well known fungal diseases and the pathogenic fungi that cause them: Aspergillus is a common fungus that can be found in some indoor and outdoor environments. Aspergillosis is the name of the infection caused by Aspergillus. There are several different kinds of aspergillosis. Blastomycosis is a disease caused by the fungus Blastomyces dermatitidis. The fungus lives in moist soil and in association with decomposing organic matter such as wood and leaves. The symptoms of blastomycosis are often similar to flu symptoms. Candidiasis is a fungal infection caused by yeasts that belong to the genus Candida. There are over 20 species of Candida yeasts that can cause infection in humans, the most common of which is Candida albicans. Coccidioidomycosis, also called Valley Fever, is an infection caused by the fungus Coccidioides, which lives in the soil of dry, low rainfall areas. It is endemic in many areas of the southwestern United States, Mexico, Central and South America. Cryptococcosis is an infection caused by fungi that belong to the genus Cryptococcus. There are over 30 different species of Cryptococcus, but two species -- Cryptococcus neoformans and Cryptococcus gattii cause nearly all cryptococcal infections in humans and animals. Dermatophytes are fungi that cause skin, hair and nail infections. Infections caused by these fungi are also sometimes known as "ringworm" or "tinea." There are many different species of dermatophytes that can cause infection in humans. Two of the most common types are Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton tonsurans, These are just a few things to know about fungal pathogens and Part 2 of this video series will discuss other common fungal pathogens

Pigeon infection: How dangerous is an infection from pigeon droppings? Two dead in Glasgow: https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/health/1076351/Pigeon-infection-Glasgow-hospital-deaths-cryptococcus-infection-symptoms. Thanks for watching, subscribe for more videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDfbQ0yPgUsZn2K5nom2AsQ?sub_confirmation=1  NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde has confirmed two patients died after contracting a fungal infection found in pigeon droppings. The infection is airborne, meaning it was contracted by patients who breathed it in. Currently, some patients are being given medication to prevent possible further infections, and authorities have been quick to assure the public they are not in danger. In a statement, NHS GGC said: ”The organism is harmless to the vast majority of people and rarely causes disease in humans."  Related articles NHS probe launched after pigeon droppings lead to two Glasgow deaths Flu season 2019: WHO says World will face another PANDEMIC  How dangerous is infection from pigeon droppings? The disease in question is caused by a strain of the Cryptococcus fungus, commonly found in both bird and bat droppings. Commonly referred to as Cryptococcus neoformans, the fungus can survive in any environment in the world, but generally prefers darker and moisture rich areas. According to the Centre for Disease Control, based in the US, Cryptococcus is spread by bats, but in the UK it is mostly spread by birds such as pigeons.  Cryptococcus neoformans is able to infect humans by releasing microscopic particles of itself, which people then breathe in. Often, people who breathe in the fungus won’t be infected by it. In the case someone does draw an infection, it is known as cryptococcosis, and usually infects the lungs, brain and spinal cord. Generally this is rare in people who are otherwise healthy, and those most at risk are those with weakened immune systems. Those in the hospital would have been particularly at risk, as they would have had other conditions which could have compromised their immune systems. Related articles Cancer symptoms: Heavy night sweats could be a sign Cancer symptoms: Six signs when you go to the toilet  When the fungus does cause infection, symptoms present themselves in different ways depending on which area of the body is infected. In the lungs, cryptococcosis causes symptoms which are much like pneumonia. These include: - Coughing - Shortness of breath - Chest pain - Fever  When cryptococcosis enters the brain after infecting the lungs, symptoms become more severe. When Cryptococcus enters the brain, the condition is known as Cryptococcal meningitis, and symptoms include: - Headache - Fever - Neck pain - Nausea and vomiting - Sensitivity to light - Confusion or changes in behaviour #Pigeon, #infectionHow, #dangerous, #infection, #from, #pigeon, #droppings, #Two, #dead, #Glasgow

Insights into Microbial Pathogenesis and Immunology from Cryptococcus Neoformans
 
59:38
Insights into Microbial Pathogenesis and Immunology from Cryptococcus Neoformans Air date: Wednesday, January 28, 2015, 3:00:00 PM Category: WALS - Wednesday Afternoon Lectures Runtime: 00:59:37 Description: Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series The majority of human pathogenic fungi are soil-dwelling microbes that have no obvious need for animal hosts. This raises a fundamental question in microbial pathogenesis: Why do some of these organisms cause disease in mammals? In this lecture we will dissect the biology of the human pathogenic fungus Cryptococcus neoformans in an effort to glean an explanation for the origin of virulence. C. neoformans is an intracellular pathogen with a remarkable replicative strategy that includes the capacity for exciting the host cell without triggering its lysis. This process involves inflicting just enough damage to the host cell to interfere with its microbicidal properties without triggering cell-death pathways such that intracellular replication can proceed unhindered while the host cell remains alive to participate in the exit of fungal cells. The similarity in the interactions between cryptococcal cells with macrophages and amoeba has led to the proposal that the cells' capacity for mammalian virulence emerged accidentally as a result of environmental interactions with phagocytic predators. In this lecture we will also explore the fascinating properties of melanin, an enigmatic pigment that performs a myriad of functions from enhancing cell-wall integrity to energy transduction. We will also consider some of the immunological lessons from studying C. neoformans, which produced important insights into novel antibody protective functions. Finally, we will look at the big picture of fungal pathogenesis and explore the concept of accidental virulence and the likelihood that global warming will bring new fungal diseases.

Cryptococcosis is the disease caused by the fungus known as Cryptococcus. Cryptococcus is a type of fungus that is found in the soil, usually in association with bird droppings. The major species of Cryptococcus that causes illness in human is Cryptococcus neoformans, which is found worldwide. Another less common species that can also cause disease in humans is Cryptococcus gattii. Since 1999, C. gattii has also been found in regions of the Pacific Northwest, particularly in Vancouver Island in British Columbia, and Oregon and Washington in the United States.

Cryptococcus Thriving on Vancouver Island
 
02:58
VICTORIA - When health warning signs first went up in Parksville's Rathtrevor Park, fears of a toxic fungus swept Vancouver Island. More than 10 yeras after Cryptococcus Gattii showed up in island fir trees, researchers at the University of Calgary say they've mad an important discovery which could lead to better treatment of Cryptococcus disease. The illness is a rare but deadly infection. It begins a pneumonia, but spreads to the brain causing meningitis. Until now, little was known about how the fungus leaves the bloodstream and enters the brain."What we discovered is how it gets to the brain, why it stops in the brain...and then we used a drug to block that process," says Dr. Christopher Mody, a researcher at Calgary's Snyder Institute of Infection, Inflammation and Immunity. Doctors say this key observation could lead to better treatment.Testing was done on a mouse using a drug already approved for other medical uses. The findings are published in this months Journal of Clinical Investigations. Since 1999, 270 people in BC have become ill from breathing the fungus in. Most cases have been traced to Vancouver island. That makes the island number 3 in the world for the infection. The BC Centre for Disease control notes that up until 12 years ago, when Cryptococcus first appeared on Vancouver Island, the fungus was only found in tropical places. Why it took hold on the island, scientists don't know. What they do know is that Cryptococcus is spreading. It's now on the lower mainland, through Washington State and Oregon. Doctors stress Cryptococcus disease is rare but does kill between 10 and 25% of infected people. Researchers hope to perform clinical trials of the drug in the next 12 to 24 months.

The health risks of pigeon droppings
 
05:54
An infection linked to pigeon droppings was a "contributing factor" in the death of a child at a Glasgow hospital, it has been confirmed. The child was being treated at the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital when he or she appears to have caught the infection - a fungus called cryptococcus.  The child has not been named. The fungus did not contribute to the death in December of a second patient infected with the same pathogen, say experts.What is it? Cryptococcus is a yeast-like fungus that lives in the environment.  It can be found in soil contaminated by pigeon droppings. How can you catch it? People can become infected if they breathe it in. The child who died in December at the hospital in Glasgow had been exposed to the fungus.  Experts say the probable source has been traced to a room on the rooftop of the hospital. Pigeon droppings appeared in the room via a small break in the wall which was "invisible to the naked eye", Scottish Secretary Jeane Freeman confirmed. The hospital says it has put infection control measures in place and no further cases have been reported.How risky is it? Most won't get sick, but vulnerable people with already weakened immunity can get very ill with a chest infection or meningitis.  Expert Prof Hugh Pennington says it is very unusual to see cases in the .  "It is common in other parts of the world, particularly tropical parts, in the US and countries like that where they have more problems with this particular kind of fungus. But in the , very uncommon. "There are cases in people who have problems with their immune systems. They're the people who are at risk with this kind of bug." Cryptococcus infection cannot spread from person to person.How dangerous is pigeon poo? Breathing dust or water droplets containing contaminated bird droppings can lead to several diseases, including a flu-like illness called psittacosis.  Salmonella - a bacterial infection that can cause diarrhoea - may also be present in some bird droppings.  If you are cleaning up or come into contact with droppings, you should take precautions. Wash your hands and clean any exposed skin before eating, drinking or putting your hands near your mouth.  Likewise, if you are feeding or handling birds, wash your hands afterwards. If you have a compromised immune system, including from HIV/AIDS or cancer, you should not clean up droppings.

Mycosis
 
05:06
Mycoses are diseases caused by fungi that affect both animals and humans. They are transmitted either by direct contagion or by indirect contagion, ie through contaminated environments and objects. They rarely lead to serious illnesses, but should not be underestimated to avoid further complications. Depending on the organs affected, mycosis can be classified into superficial mycoses (affecting skin, hairs and nails, such as ringworm) and deep mycosis (affecting internal organs, such as aspergillosis and cryptococcosis). The superficial mycoses are caused by skin fungi (dermatophytes) belonging to different genera. Microsporum canis is the most common cause for these mycoses in dogs and cats. It can also infect humans when these animals are introduced into the home, especially if they come from kennels and catteries.

Fungal infections of the skin are very common and they include various infections like ringworm infections and yeast infections, athletes foot, jock itch. Basically fungal infections they spread from other humans or animals. They are more common in tropical areas, subtropical areas and they are more common in monsoon season. On the skin it can occur on the scalp area, it can occur on the face area, in the beard area. On the beard area it is called as the barber’s itch, on the groin area. It can occur in between the toes. They are called as ringworm infections because the central area appears clear and the borders are usually well defined or they are generally scaly. The most common fungal infection, which is known as tinea cruris, which occurs in the groin area. It is called as dhobis itch jock itch or. Itchy rashes in the upper inner aspects of the thigh, which may spread on to the genitalia, buttocks, and abdomen. Fungal infections are more common in obese individuals, in diabetics. In pregnant women, it is more common in people taking broad spectrum antibiotics or oral contraceptive pills. For investigating fungal infections, we do skin scraping. We take scraping from under the skin and then examine under the microscope to see if there is any growth of fungi. We also do a culture and biopsy to rule out fungal infections and appropriate antifungal treatment is needed for the management of fungal infections. Melanoma is basically a cancer that arises from thee pigment cells or the melanocytes in the skin. Melanoma is more common in whites than in Asians or Indians or in blacks. Generally melanoma can be more dangerous than in the other forms of skin cancers because it can spread to the other parts of the body and can be life threatening o]r fatal. So it is very essential to diagnose melanoma in the early stages and the treatment of melanoma. Melanoma usually they resembles moles or the birth marks or 10 to 30% they develop form the existing birth marks. So if you have a birth mark you have to see or look for warning signs. This is called as the ABCDE criteria. A , that is if your birth mark is asymmetrical, that is if you draw a line through the centre of the birth marks or the mole, of the two halves are asymmetrical, it is better to go consult a doctor. B, the border, generally the non cancerous moles have smooth even border whereas the melanoma or the cancerous mole, they have uneven borders, C for the colour. Common moles or the non-cancerous moles, they have one colour whereas melanoma has variety of colours like brown, blue , black, it can be pale also or red. So if you have different colours in your mole, it is better to go get it surgically removed. D is the diameter. So generally the non-cancerous moles are smaller than the melanoma. E for evolution. So you have to see for any change in the traits of your mole like change in the skin colour or the skin texture or any surface changes or any bleeding, crusting, oozing of liquid or pain in the lesions, then you should go and consult your doctor. So if there are any of these changes, then it is better to get a biopsy done and surgically remove it as soon as possible to avoid any further complication.
