Treatment Approaches for Emerging Systemic Mycotic Infections in AIDS Patients

Treatment Approaches for Emerging Systemic Mycotic Infections in AIDS Patients Emerging Systemic Mycotic Infections in AIDS Patients By Kevin D. Blanchet scientists have identified thousands of fungi species over the years, only about 200 of these species are known to cause disease. Out of these 200 Treatment Approaches for While pathogens, 20 species can cause life-threatening systemic infections in humans. Three disease are histoplasmosis, blastomycosis, and aspergillosis. Until recently, treatment strategies for these three infections remained severely limited. Though still fairly rare, these infections tend to favor certain geographic distribution with an increased incidence now being reported. As a result, clinicians need to be aware of these mycotic diseases as they care for their patients with HIV disease. mycotic infections in people with HIV emerging systemic The state of Indiana is an important endemic area. While the number of people diagnosed as having HPV is relatively small there, disseminated histoplasmosis is quite common in these individuals. Of the first 15 patients with AIDS seen in Indianapolis, 6 had disseminated histoplasmosis.
