Abstract: between 2005 and 2008, the prevalence of systemic mycosis among 1,300 hiv/aids patients in cuiabá, mato grosso, was 4.6%. the fungus species isolated were cryptococcus neoformans in 50%, cryptococcus gattii in 1.6%, cryptococcus spp in 6.6%, histoplasma capsulatum in 38.3% and paracoccidioides brasiliensis in 3.3%. death was recorded in the cases of 32 patients (53.3%), and cryptococcosis was the main cause. the cd4+ t lymphocyte count was low and similar among patients who survived or died due to systemic mycosis. the factors independently associated with the deaths of these patients were alcoholism (or: 8.2; 95% ci: 1.4-62.1; p = 0005) and the mean level of lactate dehydrogenase [758 (182) u/l vs. 416 (268) u/l; p < 0001]. the findings showed that systemic mycosis was highly lethal among the patients with hiv/aids in cuiabá and suggested that clinical-laboratory characteristics such as alcoholism and early elevation of lactate dehydrogenase may be factors relating to worse prognosis under these conditions.

Abstract: Background: Indoor air quality in environments where there is great circulation of people, posing risks to the health of its occupants, including allergic problems, infections and contaminations, can be aided by climatic factors, chemicals and biological agents housed in these environments, influencing the location and providing favorable conditions for the degradation of bibliographic collections. The present study investigated the presence of fungi in indoor environments in seven public and private libraries in the central region of Brazil, Mato Grosso, and verified the impact on occupational health. Results: A total of 26,194 fungal specimens were isolated from 342 dust samples collected using three techniques: Andersen’s sampler (12.3%), exposure plate dish (25.1%) and sterile swab (62.6%). A total of 184 fungal species were identified: 156 (84.8%) mycelial fungi and 28 (15.2%) yeast fungi, belonging 54 fungal genera, 43 (79.6%) mycelial fungi and 11 (20.4%) yeast fungi. The genus Aspergillus (40.6%) was one of the main fungi present in indoor air. Aspergillus niger (12.3%) was identified as the most prevalent species in literary environments, followed by Cryptococcus spp. (7.1%) and Cladosporium cladosporioides (7.0%). In relation to seasonal distribution, there was a greater fungal isolation in the dry season (54%); followed by the rainy season (46%). Conclusion: These results suggest the substrates researched in the evaluated environments presented in the form of documents, books and papers associated with dust and air humidity become suitable for microbiological proliferation. These findings highlight the importance of minimizing the risk of exposure to fungal agents, identified in pathogenic and toxigenic microenvironments in library collections.

Abstract: backgrounds: some fungi are natural inhabitants of the human body but may result in disease when conditions are conducive to their development. yeast infections are common and often occur in the skin and mucous membranes; however emerging species have changed this epidemiological profile. the ability to colonize different anatomical sites has been associated with the pathogenicity of candida when environmental conditions are particularly favorable. in the case of hot, humid climates, the attrition suffered by the skin and weakened immune defenses may result in yeasts becoming pathogenic rather than commensal organisms. objective: the objective of this study was to diagnose yeast infections in military personnel and to evaluate the frequency of these infections in the individuals evaluated. methods: the clinical material analyzed was seeded in duplicate in sabouraud dextrose agar (difco?) and mycosel medium (difco?). the etiological agents were identified by observing the germ tubes, microculture and physiological characteristics, assimilation of carbon sources (auxanogram) and fermentation of carbon sources (zymogram). results: of a total of 197 patients evaluated, 91 (46.2%) had episodes of candidiasis. the genitocrural region was the most commonly affected area (47.7%) followed by the interdigital regions (between the toes or fingers) (27.8%). candida albicans, candida parapsilosis, candida tropicalis, candida glabrata and emergent species such as candida krusei and candida guilliermondii were found. conclusions: in the work environment, having to use shoes and uniforms for extended periods of time, in addition to stress and perspiration, were considered predisposing factors for the development of fungal infections.

Abstract: this study is the first report on genetic differences between isolates of paracoccidioides brasiliensis from a single patient. we describe a simultaneous infection with genetically distinct isolates of p. brasiliensis in a patient with chronic paracoccidioidomycosis. the clinical isolates were obtained from lesions in different anatomical sites and were characterised by random amplified polymorphic dna (rapd) analysis. the rapd technique can be helpful for distinguishing between clinical isolates. different random primers were used to characterise these clinical isolates. the rapd patterns allowed for differentiation between isolates and the construction of a phenetic tree, which showed more than 28% genetic variability in this fungal species, opening new possibilities for clinical studies of p. brasiliensis. based on these results and preliminary clinical findings, we suggest that different genotypes of p. brasiliensis might infect the same patient, inducing the active form of the disease.

Abstract: Paracoccidioides lutzii is a new agent of paracoccidioidomycosis (PCM) and has its epicenter localized to the Central-West region of Brazil. Serological diagnosis of PCM caused by P. lutzii has not been established. This study aimed to develop new antigenic preparations from P. lutzii and to apply them in serological techniques to improve the diagnosis of PCM due to P. lutzii. Paracoccidioides lutzii exoantigens, cell free antigen (CFA), and a TCA-precipitated antigen were evaluated in immunodiffusion (ID) tests using a total of 89 patient sera from the Central-West region of Brazil. Seventy-two sera were defined as reactive for P. brasiliensis using traditional antigens (AgPbB339 and gp43). Non-reactive sera for traditional antigens (n = 17) were tested with different P. lutzii preparations and P. lutzii CFA showed 100% reactivity. ELISA was found to be a very useful test to titer anti-P. lutzii antibodies using P. lutzii-CFA preparations. Sera from patients with PCM due to P. lutzii presented with higher antibody titers than PCM due to P. brasiliensis and heterologous sera. In western blot, sera from patients with PCM due to P. lutzii were able to recognize antigenic molecules from the P. lutzii-CFA antigen, but sera from patients with PCM due to P. brasiliensis could not recognize any P. lutzii molecules. Due to the facility of preparing P. lutzii CFA antigens we recommend its use in immunodiffusion tests for the diagnosis of PCM due to P. lutzii. ELISA and western blot can be used as complementary tests.
