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.

It is a fungal infection caused by a fungus named C. neoformans or C. gattii. It is widely spread around the world. It is mostly harmless, until coming in contact to a person with very low immunity. It does not affect any person who has a normal to above average immunity. But for people with a lesser active immune system, it is another story. It generally affects people's lungs, brains and spinal cord, especially the central nervous system. It can also extend to other parts of the body, if not treated on time or effectively. Fungus Cryptococcus induced brain infections are termed cryptococcal meningitis.

Updated by Dr Thomas Stewart, General Practitioner, Sydney, Australia, November 2017. What is malassezia folliculitis? Malassezia folliculitis, previously known as pityrosporum folliculitis, is an infection of hair follicles caused by lipophilic malassezia yeasts. There are multiple malassezia species, including furfur, globosa, sympodialis and restricta . The yeast is a normal inhabitant of human skin and only causes disease under specific conditions . WHAT ARE THE CONDITIONS IN A OTHERWISE HEALTHY PERSON????? Malassezia have been linked to a number of skin diseases including seborrhoeicdermatitis, folliculitis, confluent and reticulated papillomatosis and pityriasisversicolor . Who gets malassezia folliculitis? Malassezia folliculitis is most commonly seen in adolescent and young adult males living in humid climates [3,4]. Other risk factors include: High sebum production [3,4]Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) [3,4]Occlusion from emollients and sunscreensAntibiotic use Oral steroids such as prednisone (steroid acne)Immunosuppression . How does malassezia folliculitis present? Malassezia folliculitis presents as small uniform itchy papules and pustules on the forehead, chin, neck, trunk and extensor aspect of the upper limbs. They may be itchy. How is malassezia folliculitis diagnosed? Clinical examination is usually sufficient for diagnosis. Laboratory investigations may be performed. Potassium hydroxide preparation of skin scrapings may reveal budding spores and hyphae .Other stains, including the May-Grunwald-Giema stain may also be helpful, but are less commonly used .Cultures are not routinely done, as malassezia species typically require special media for growth. Malassezia folliculitis may also be suspected by finding organisms within the hairfollicles on histopathological examination of a skin biopsy. Treatment of malassezia folliculitis It is important to address any predisposing factors at the outset, as malassezia folliculitis has a tendency to recur. Oral treatment is recommended, as it has proven much more effective than topical agent. Fluconazole is used more commonly than itraconazole due to its superior side effect profile . Topical agents (eg, selenium sulfide shampoo, econazole solution) may also be used but should be reserved for those unable to tolerate oral treatment [9,10]. Isotretinoin and photodynamic therapy (PDT) have been used with some success in small case series [8, 11,12]. Prevention of malassezia folliculitis Recurrence is common, even after successful treatment . Long-term prophylaxis with topical agents may be considered in those at high-risk or with multiple recurrences.

According to some estimates, there are over 20 million pet birds residing in almost 7 million households in the United States. These pets bring joy and happiness to their owners, but they can also impact the indoor air quality of a home and on rare occasions may cause human illnesses. In addition to potential odors issues, perhaps one of the most common concerns associated with pet birds is their ability to trigger allergies in some people. The usual source of the allergens is the pet bird’s dander or even dust mites which can collect in the bird’s feathers. Pet owners can also be exposed to pathogens from their birds through inhalation, ingestion or through cuts and abrasions on their skin. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lists the following four diseases associated with pet birds, although they may not occur frequently in the U.S.: • Cryptococcosis (Cryptococcus neoformans) - People get cryptococcosis by breathing in contaminated dust or getting it in open wounds. In humans, symptoms resemble pneumonia and include shortness of breath, coughing, and fever. Skin infections can also occur. Infants, the elderly and those with a weakened immune system can be more susceptible to serious infections. • Histoplasmosis (Histoplasma capsulatum) - Histoplasmosis is a fungal disease that is spread to people when they breathe in dust from pigeon or bat droppings. • Mycobacterium avium complex (MAC, Avian Tuberculosis) - MAC is a bacterial disease spread to people from birds and other animals through the environment, though it is not clear exactly how the bacteria are transmitted. • Parrot Fever (Psittacosis; Chlamydiophila psittaci) - Parrot fever is a bacterial disease that people can get after accidentally breathing in secretions of infected psittacine birds, including parrots and parakeets, or poultry and wild birds. Another potential health concern associated with birds is bird fancier’s lung (BFL), a type of hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) associated mainly with exposure to dry dusts from bird droppings. In recent years, avian influenza outbreaks have also occurred in other parts of the world. These are just a few things to know about pet birds, indoor air quality and your health.

Do you have a feline friend that always has a stuffy nose? Dr. Dhaliwal explains a rhinoscopy procedure with a Kitty that had years of nasal discharge. In this video, Kitty is fully anesthetized so he's comfortable. A rhinoscopy (scoping of the nasal cavity) can be used for fact finding when dogs or cats have a suspected foreign body or tumour, constant or reoccurring discharge or obstructed breathing through their nose. A rhinoscopy allows veterinarians to view the inside of a nasal cavity on a screen, and prevents a pet from having to endure an invasive surgical procedure.

Read More: http://www.emaxhealth.com/1275/fungus-cryptococcus-gatti-threat-healthy-people.html Infection with C. gattii causes symptoms about two weeks or more after individuals or animals have been exposed to the airborne spores. Once the spores are inhaled, they embed themselves in the lungs, colonize, and then spread throughout the body. Symptoms include persistent cough, pneumonia, sharp chest pains, shortness of breath, fever, weight loss, headache, and nighttime sweats. Meningitis can also occur.

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.

Lovebird Desperately Mourns Over the Loss of Her Beloved Partner | Amazing Animals by The Frugal_Trekker https://youtu.be/4qweiLGmkNQ I cannot hold on my feeling of guilt and grief upon seeing this lovebird's desperate moment over the remains of her departed partner. This reminds me of my dear departed disabled pigeon whom I have lived with for 5 years until her untimely demise. 14 Fun Facts About Lovebirds 1. Lovebirds mate for life. The monogamous birds reach reproductive maturity when they're about ten months old. Mating begins with courtship behavior, and can continue throughout their roughly 15-year lifespans. Monogamy is essential to the social stability of flocks and underlies much of their social behavior. 2. Lovebirds pine for each other. If a mate dies or gets separated from the flock, its companion exhibits erratic behavior that some have likened to depression. Birds kept as pets often don't like being alone and will exhibit similar behavior in captivity. 3. Like overly affectionate couples in restaurants on Valentine’s Day, lovebirds feed each other. Often after a long separation or stressful period of time, breeding pairs of lovebirds feed each other to re-establish their bond. One bird transfers food to the mouth of its mate, a feeding technique reminiscent of affection in humans—hence the inspiration for the parrots' name. 4. There's more than one species of lovebird. The nine species classified as lovebirds come all from the genus Agapornis. Most lovebirds have a green body and sport different head feather coloration. Their closest relatives are hanging parrots, found in Asia. 5. Lovebirds are from Africa. Lovebirds are native to the forests and savannas of Sub-Saharan Africa and Madagascar. Fossils of ancient lovebird species have been unearthed in South Africa, dating to as far back as 1.9 million years ago. 6. But you might see a lovebird at your backyard birdfeeder. That's if you live in the American southwest, San Francisco or cities in Africa. These areas are home to feral populations, flocks that likely either escaped from an aviary or are the remnants of an abandoned aviary. 7. Lovebirds live in holes. Lovebirds are cavity dwellers they make their home in holes in trees, rocks or shrubs in the wild. Some species nest in groups, while others pair off to build their nests away from the flock. 8. Different lovebird species build their nests in different ways. Fisher’s lovebirds (Agapornis fischeri) carry single strips of tree bark in their beaks. Peach-faced lovebirds (Agapornis roseicollis), on the other hand, hide bark in their feathers. 9. Some lovebirds are androgynous. In three species of lovebirds, the males and females have defining characteristics that allow you to tell them apart. For example, among Black-winged lovebirds (Agapornis taranta), males have a crown of red feathers, while females have entirely green plumage. 10. Lovebirds don't eat chocolate. It might seem like common sense, but save your chocolate and give it to a human. Lovebirds survive on a healthy diet of seeds, berries, fruit, and occassionally insect larva in the wild. In Africa, they're also known as crafty crop pests, as they feast on millet and maize farms. 11. Lovebirds can be mean. Aggression isn't uncommon in lovebirds. The parrots are territorial, and are known to get along poorly with birds of another species. Within their own kind, lovebirds can also become jealous or hormonal during mating season. 12. Lovebirds can carry zoonotic diseases that infect humans. Some studies suggest that lovebirds can carry yeast bacteria (Cryptococcus neoformans) capable of infecting humans. 13. Some lovebirds might become endangered in the next decade. The black-cheeked lovebird (Agapornis nigrigenis), native to Zambia and found in parts of Zimbabwe and Botswana, is classified as vulnerable by the IUCN Red Listing of Threatened Species. 14. Lovebirds (sort of) inspired Valentine's Day. Scholars typically cite a poem by Geoffrey Chaucer as the first evidence of the connection between the religious celebration of Saint Valentine's day and romantic love. The poem, "Parliament of Foules," happens to feature two birds which exhibit all the markings of human love.

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.

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

On August 21, 2004, John Auerbacher was vacationing with his wife, eight-year old son, and five-year old daughter at a Montana dude ranch. On a stormy trail ride, John’s horse spooked and tossed him to the ground. The pain was horrific. The local urgent care clinic failed to recognize John’s L5 fracture, so the family continued with their vacation plans to show the children Yellowstone National Park. Still in excruciating pain, John visited an ER in Montana for another misdiagnosis and so remained blissfully ignorant for a few more days. Back in New York, John’s friend, an orthopedist, ordered the appropriate tests and earned the unfortunate task of sharing the bad news (on his wife’s birthday). Pain and panic of a different sort set in. While awaiting consults with New York City specialists, John and his wife flew to the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) in Little Rock for a thorough work-up. Their recommendation: move to Little Rock for six months to undergo two stem cell transplants. The New York specialists disagreed among themselves and with UAMS. Left reeling with conflicting advice, fortunately, John’s rabbi knew Rosanne Kalick (former IMF support group leader), and Rosanne connected John to the IMF. On October 8, barely a month after diagnosis, the IMF held a Patient & Family Seminar nearby. Rosanne told John to go and speak with “Susie.” He walked into that seminar and asked for “Susie,” who said, “you should speak with my husband.” Within minutes, Dr. Brian Durie arrived, whom John had never heard of at the time. Dr. Durie transported John into a world of concern, self-education, and support. Today, John comments, “I did not imagine that the IMF would become so integral to my life. Now, seven Patient & Family Seminars later, one ASH meeting under my belt and years of attending and leading a support group, the IMF is essential to my physical and mental health.” In 2004, John followed the advice of Dr. Durie and several other myeloma specialists, which was “take care of your back.” John complied with radiation, kyphoplasty, and bisphosphonates. However, John delayed direct myeloma treatment until February 2007. His first regimen consisted of Revlimid® (lenalidomide) and dex over a three-year period, followed by two and a half years of stability without treatment. After a PET-CT showed some new lesions in the summer of 2012, he began a relapse course of Revlimid and dexamethasone with the addition of Velcade® (bortezomib). As the M-spike crept up more recently, another PET-CT disclosed a very rare and dangerous fungal infection in his sinuses (Cryptococcus neoformans grubeii). After a miserable two-week hospital stay to receive an infused anti-fungal (Amphotericin B), John began a very effective course of Pomalyst®, dex, and Kyprolis® (carfilzomib). Due to elevated blood pressure and shortness of breath, the Kyprolis was stopped. Today, John is on Pomalyst® (pomalidomide) and dex and discussing which medicine to add: Empliciti® (elotuzumab), Darzalex® (daratumumab), or Ninlaro® (ixazomib). He continues to swim, practice yoga, ski (against doctor’s advice), and work. John also enjoys a diet of fresh food to counter the ravishing appetite that dex can bring on and to maintain an otherwise healthy body. With his son is in college and his daughter about to graduate high school, John and his wife just celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary. Last year, John became a co-facilitator with Jeff O’Donnell of the Westchester (NY) IMF Support Group. Jeff and John had occasionally stepped into these roles on the rare occasions when Mike Katz was unavailable. While at the 2016 ASH conference, John hopes “to focus on the advances in combining the new drugs approved in 2015, on the most promising medicines in clinical trials, and on what patients can expect from the incorporation of MRD testing as a standard.” Follow John on Twitter @IMFjohnMyeloma Please subscribe to our channel!
