BACKGROUND: Over the last decades, Candida species have emerged as important pathogens in immunocompromised patients. Nosocomial infections are mainly of endogenous origin. Nevertheless, some cases of exogenous candidiasis have also been reported. AIMS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the genetic relatedness between Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei and Candida kefyr isolates recovered from intensive care unit (ICU) patients...

BACKGROUND: No phenotypic methods are available to unequivocally differentiate species within the Candida glabrata complex. AIMS: To develop a new multiplex PCR method to differentiate between the three species of the C. glabrata species complex, as well as using it to study a C. glabrata collection to discover strains of the newly described species. METHODS: The method was developed based on the Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS) sequence differences between the species...

BACKGROUND: The frequency of Candida isolates as a cause of hospital infections has risen in recent years, leading to high rates of morbidity and mortality. The knowledge of the epidemiology of those hospital acquired fungal infections is essential to implement an adequate antifungal therapy. AIMS: To describe the epidemiology of Candida infections in Intensive Care Units (ICUs) from a surveillance network in Colombia. METHODS: Information was collected from the microbiology laboratories of 20 tertiary healthcare institutions from 10 Colombian cities using the Whonet® software version 5...

BACKGROUND: Ancylostoma species have demanded attention due to their zoonotic potential. The use of anthelmintics is the usual method to prevent environmental contamination by Ancylostoma eggs and larvae. Nematophagous fungi have been widely used in their biological control due to the fungus ability to capture and digest free nematode forms. AIMS: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of four different fungal extracts of Paecilomyces lilacinus (n=2), Trichoderma harzianum (n=1) and Trichoderma virens (n=1) isolates on the hatchability of Ancylostoma eggs...

BACKGROUND: Although the management of invasive fungal infection (IFI) has improved, a number of controversies persist regarding the approach to invasive fungal infection in non-neutropenic medical ward patients. AIMS: To identify the essential clinical knowledge to elaborate a set of recommendations with a high level of consensus necessary for the management of IFI in non-neutropenic medical ward patients. METHODS: A prospective, Spanish questionnaire, which measures consensus through the Delphi technique, was anonymously answered and e-mailed by 30 multidisciplinary national experts, all specialists (intensivists, anesthesiologists, microbiologists, pharmacologists and specialists in infectious diseases) in IFI and belonging to six scientific national societies...

BACKGROUND: Although in the past decade the management of invasive fungal infections has improved, a number of controversies persist regarding empirical antifungal treatment in critically-ill hematology patients. AIMS: To identify key clinical knowledge to elaborate a set of recommendations, with a high level of consensus, necessary for the approach to fungal infections in critically-ill hematology patients. METHODS: A Spanish prospective questionnaire, which measures consensus through the Delphi technique, was anonymously answered and e-mailed by 30 multidisciplinary national experts, all specialists in fungal invasive infections from six scientific national societies; intensivists, anesthesiologists, microbiologists, pharmacologists and specialists in infectious diseases...

Elena M Marín Martínez, Ana Isabel Aller García, Estrella Martín-Mazuelos
BACKGROUND: Invasive fungal infection (IFI) has increased in recent years due to there being a greater number of risk factors. IFI caused by Candida is the most frequent, and although Candida albicans is the most isolated species, there is currently a decrease of C. albicans and an increase of other species of the genus. AIMS: To analyse the epidemiology, risk factors, and antifungal susceptibility of blood culture isolates of non-C.albicans Candida species in our hospital in the last 12years...

BACKGROUND: Colombia currently does not have a specialised service for measuring antifungal levels in serum, which is of prime importance for the proper treatment and correct management of invasive fungal infections. AIMS: To standardise and validate a simple, sensitive, and specific protocol, based on high performance liquid chromatography, complying with the parameters recommended by the Food and Drug Administration, to detect, identify, and quantify serum concentrations of posaconazole...

BACKGROUND: Two-phase olive-mill wastes (or "alperujo") exhibit highly phytotoxic properties, mainly due to phenols. A valuable option for alperujo is its agricultural use, provided that no phytotoxic effects occur. AIMS: The present investigation was aimed at evaluating the efficacy of two strains of the lignin-degrading fungus Flammulina velutipes to colonize alperujo in order to produce edible mushrooms and to achieve its detoxification. METHODS: Some important cultural characters related to mushroom production (earliness, biological efficiency and quality of basidiomes) were estimated...

Eduardo Alvarez, Camila Sanhueza
BACKGROUND: Scedosporium species are considered emerging agents causing illness in immunocompromised patients. In Chile, only Scedosporium apiospermum, Scedosporium boydii and Lomentospora prolificans haven been reported previously. AIMS: The study aimed to characterize genetically Scedosporium dehoogii strains from Chilean soil samples, and assessed the antifungal susceptibility profile to classic and novel putative antifungal molecules. METHODS: In 2014, several samples were obtained during a survey of soil fungi in urban areas from Chile...

BACKGROUND: Cladophialophora bantiana is a melanised mold with a pronounced tropism for the central nervous system, almost exclusively causing human brain abscesses. CASE REPORT: We describe a case of cerebral infection by this fungus in an otherwise healthy 28-year-old coal-miner. Environmental occurrence, route of entry, and incubation period of this fungus are unknown, but our case is informative in that the first symptoms occurred about eight weeks after known traumatic inoculation...

We present the case of a 34 year-old man, HIV-positive, who had suffered a disseminated histoplasmosis treated with amphotericin B one year before his admission. He was admitted at the Infectious Diseases Muñiz Hospital with a non-lithiasic chlolecystitis. During the clinical examination perigenital skin lesions compatible with tinea cruris, as well as proximal subungual onychomycoses of toenails, were observed. Microsporum gypseum was isolated from both types of lesions. Oral terbinafine led to a good clinical response...

The case of a 22 year-old pregnant woman, suffering an infectious disease with skin lesions on the head, is presented. The patient referred a systemic mycosis 5 years before, treated with oral antifungal, with good clinical response. The mycological study of the skin clinical samples showed multiple budding yeast like elements consistent with Paracoccidioides, and the same organism was isolated in cultures. Physical examination and images studies did not show other location of the mycosis. The patient was treated with oral cotrimoxazole during pregnancy and lactation; afterwards this treatment was stopped and replaced by itraconazole by oral route at a daily dose of 200mg due to the poor clinical response observed with the first treatment...

BACKGROUND: Although in the last decade the management of invasive fungal infections has improved, a number of controversies persist regarding the management of complicated intra-abdominal infection and surgical extended length-of-stay (LOS) patients in intensive care unit (ICU). AIMS: To identify the essential clinical knowledge and elaborate a set of recommendations, with a high level of consensus, necessary for the management of postsurgical patients with complicated intra-abdominal infection and surgical patients with ICU extended stay...

Ana Isabel Renau, Carolina García-Vidal, Miguel Salavert
Currently, there are few studies on candidaemia in the severely burned patient. These patients share the same risk factors for invasive fungal infections as other critically ill patients, but have certain characteristics that make them particularly susceptible. These include the loss of skin barrier due to extensive burns, fungal colonisation of the latter, and the use of hydrotherapy or other topical therapies (occasionally with antimicrobials). In addition, the increased survival rate achieved in recent decades in critically burned patients due to the advances in treatment has led to the increase of invasive Candida infections...
