Aspergillosis


A rare infection with the fungus Aspergillus fumigatus (found in old buildings or decaying plants) that can attack the mucous membranes of the nose or urethra, the lungs, liver, or kidneys. It is an occasionally fatal opportunistic infection among children with impaired immune systems, especially if the infection has spread throughout the body. The fungus is found everywhere in soil and proliferates rapidly. Inhalation of A. fumigatusand A. flatus is common but infection is rare. Treatment Topical fungicides can be used on the skin; amphotericin B is used to treat systemic aspergillosis, especially if it has spread to the lungs.
