Andrew N Rosenbaum, John K Bohman, Kent H Rehfeldt, John M Stulak, Richard C Daly, Allan M Klompas, Atta Behfar, Suraj M Yalamuri,

Utilization of venoarterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) is expanding, but dual VA-ECMO circuits to treat cardiogenic shock with refractory hypoxemia is unreported. We describe the case of combined cardiogenic and distributive shock due to necrotizing pulmonary blastomycosis. After initial central VA-ECMO cannulation, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) with increasing shunt ... Read more >>

Two Cases Illustrating the Diagnostic Challenge of Pediatric Blastomycosis Presenting as Osteomyelitis.

Danièle Y Gusland, Andrew T Livermore, Alana K Sterkel, Jie C Nguyen, James H Conway,

Blastomyces dermatitidis is a dimorphic fungus endemic to the United States and Canada. Although both Histoplasma and Blastomyces are found in similar geographic regions, Blastomyces is many times more likely to cause dissemination in the immunocompetent host, frequently involving the bone. However, given the indolent nature of this fungal infection ... Read more >>

Blastomycosis.

Ilan S Schwartz, Carol A Kauffman,

Blastomycosis is a serious fungal disease of humans and other mammals caused by environmentally acquired infection with geographically restricted, thermally dimorphic fungi belonging to the genus Blastomyces. The genetic and geographic diversity of these pathogens is greater than previously appreciated. In addition to Blastomyces dermatitidis and the cryptic species Blastomyces ... Read more >>

Advances in Understanding Human Genetic Variations That Influence Innate Immunity to Fungi.

Richard M Merkhofer, Bruce S Klein,

Fungi are ubiquitous. Yet, despite our frequent exposure to commensal fungi of the normal mammalian microbiota and environmental fungi, serious, systemic fungal infections are rare in the general population. Few, if any, fungi are obligate pathogens that rely on infection of mammalian hosts to complete their lifecycle; however, many fungal ... Read more >>

Re-drawing the Maps for Endemic Mycoses.

Nida Ashraf, Ryan C Kubat, Victoria Poplin, Antoine A Adenis, David W Denning, Laura Wright, Orion McCotter, Ilan S Schwartz, Brendan R Jackson, Tom Chiller, Nathan C Bahr,

Endemic mycoses such as histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, blastomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, and talaromycosis are well-known causes of focal and systemic disease within specific geographic areas of known endemicity. However, over the past few decades, there have been increasingly frequent reports of infections due to endemic fungi in areas previously thought to be "non-endemic." ... Read more >>

BACKGROUND:Paracoccidioidomycosis is a neglected tropical disease, endemic in several countries of South America including Colombia. We report a case of a patient with Chronic Multifocal Paracoccidioidomycosis with long-standing symptoms and a delayed diagnosis caused by several barriers to achieve it. We did a review of the papers published in Colombia ... Read more >>

Lauana Aparecida Santos, Julianne Caravita Grisolia, Luiz Cosme Cotta Malaquias, Fernanda Borges de Araújo Paula, Amanda Latércia Tranches Dias, Eva Burger,

Fungal infections have been increasing in recent decades, mainly affecting immunocompromised individuals, although certain mycoses, such as paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM), infect immunologically competent individuals. The major problems observed regarding fungal diseases are inadequate diagnosis, prolonged treatment time, the reduced number of drugs available for treatment, in addition to the fact that ...

North American blastomycosis in an immunocompromised patient.

Mayha Patel, Jeffrey K Lander,

Blastomycosis is a subacute or chronic deep mycosis caused by a dimorphic fungus, Blastomyces dermatitidis, that generally produces a pulmonary form of the disease and, to a lesser extent, extrapulmonary forms, such as cutaneous, osteoarticular, and genitourinary. Both immunocompetent and immunocompromised individuals can be infected, but more severe disease occurs ... Read more >>

F Messina, M Romero, A Benchetrit, E Marin, A Arechavala, R Depardo, R Negroni, G Santiso,

Paracoccidioidomycosis (Pm) is a systemic disease, endemic in the American continent. There are two different clinical forms, the infant-juvenile or subacute form (PmS) and the chronic adult form (PmC).

New Insights on Pulmonary Paracoccidioidomycosis.

Flá Vio de Queiroz-Telles, Paula Massaroni Peçanha Pietrobom, Marcos Rosa Júnior, Rodrigo de Melo Baptista, Paulo Mendes Peçanha,

Paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) is one of the most relevant systemic endemic mycoses in Latin American countries, especially in South American countries, with endemic and hyperendemic areas. The real burden of PCM may be underestimated because of a lack of compulsory case notification. Recent phylogenetic data revealed that Paracoccidioides brasiliensis comprises several ...

Bedside intravascular ultrasound-guided fibrin sheath balloon maceration and inferior vena cava filter placement during extracorporeal membranous oxygenation decannulation.

William M Sherk, Minhaj S Khaja, Alexandria Jo, Xhorlina Marko, David M Williams,

Inferior vena cava filter placement during extracorporeal membranous oxygenation decannulation has been described as a technique to prevent potentially lethal pulmonary embolism in this critically ill population. With long-standing extracorporeal membranous oxygenation cannulae, venous fibrin sheaths may develop, which may predispose to filter maldeployment or inadequate embolus filtration. This report ...
