INTRODUCTION • Mycoses refers to infection by fungal agents. • Fungi are eukaryotes with cell wall that grow as multi cellular filaments (molds) OR individual cells alone or in chains (yeast). • Molds consist of thread like filaments called Hyphae. 2.

    Infectious and noninfectious skin diseases are observed in about 90% of HIV patients, and their incidence increases and is more severe as the immune system weakens. Cutaneous manifestations are considered good clinical predictors for the immunological condition of the patient with AIDS and the introduction of highly effective antiretroviral therapy totally changed the prognosis of the mycoses. Histoplasmosis and coccidioidomycosis are serious opportunistic infections in patients with AIDS who reside in areas of endemicity of the United States and Central and South America. Blastomycosis, although less common, also must be recognized as an opportunistic infection in patients with AIDS. Prompt diagnosis requires knowledge of the clinical syndromes and diagnostic tests as well as a.

The acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) induced by the retrovirus HIV identified at the Pasteur Institute by Montagnier and his group (Barré-Sinoussi et al., ) is characterized by a marked depression of cellular immunity due to the reduction and destruction of T4 helper lymphocytes and some macrophages by the by:   Dermatophytoses are infections of skin, hair, or nails caused by dermatophytes, fungi with great affinity to keratin.

15 Its estimated incidence varies between 15% and 40%, being also a frequent complaint among immunodepressed patients. 7 The depletion of CD4+ T lymphocytes (cell count below /mm 3) in AIDS patients is a risk factor for fungal infections.

8 Three genders are possible. Non-AIDS patients % AIDS patients 50%. With relapse there is 60% mortality. Sporotrichosis. Co-infection with other fungi is frequent Coccidioidomycosis (figure 7 and 8) Mycelial forms seen in tissue.

Occurs in patients outside the endemic area. Patients require fluconazole or itraconazole maintenance therapy. The working group organized a hugely successful 2nd EMBO Conference in AIDS-related mycoses, attended by over researchers from a very broad global representation at the University of Cape Town in South Africa in July (See photo below of participants).

This contribution describes the systemic mycoses that are more frequent in the seropositive population, that is, patients with HIV/AIDS, which are cryptococcosis, histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, blastomycosis, paracoccidioidomycosis, sporotrichosis, penicilliosis, and aspergillosis.

Systemic infections are mainly with Pneumocystis jirovecii (pneumocystosis), Cryptococcus neoformans (cryptococcosis), Histoplasma capsulatum (histoplasmosis), and Talaromyces (Penicillium) marneffei (talaromycosis). The incidence of systemic fungal infections has decreased in people with HIV in.
