Blastomyces dermatitidis is the causal agent of blastomycosis, an invasive and often serious fungal infection found occasionally in humans and other animals in regions where the fungus is endemic. The causal organism is a fungus living in soil and wet, decaying wood, often in an area close to a waterway such as a lake, river or stream. Indoor growth may also occur, for example, in accumulated debris in damp sheds or shacks. The fungus is endemic to parts of eastern North America, particularly boreal northern Ontario, southeastern Manitoba, Quebec south of the St. Lawrence River, parts of the U.S. Appalachian mountains and interconnected eastern mountain chains, the west bank of Lake Michigan, the state of Wisconsin, and the entire Mississippi Valley including the valleys of some major trib

  • Blastomyces dermatitidis is de anamorfe naam van een schimmel die behoort tot de ascomyceten en is de veroorzaker van blastomycose bij mensen en dieren. De teleomorfe naam is Ajellomyces dermatitidis. De schimmel leeft in de grond en in vochtig, rottend hout vaak in de buurt van water, zoals een meer, rivier of beek. De schimmel komt ook voor in afval onder afdakken en in vochtige schuren. De schimmel komt endemisch voor in het oosten van Noord-Amerika, vooral in bosachtig gebieden in Ontario, Manitoba en Quebec ten zuiden van de the St. Lawrence rivier, Appalachen en de westoever van Lake Michigan, Wisconsin en de Mississippi vallei. Daarnaast komt Blastomyces dermatitidis in Afrika rondom de Sahara, Arabisch Schiereiland en het Indisch subcontinent voor. Infectie ontstaat door het inademen van conidiën van de schimmel, die in de longen als gistvorm gaan groeien. Vandaaruit kan verspreiding door het bloed naar andere delen van het lichaam, zoals de huid, botten, genitaliën en de hersenen, optreden. (nl)
  • Blastomyces dermatitidis é um fungo dimórfico, encontrado principalmente no solo e matéria orgânica da América do Norte, e pode causar blastomicose ao ser inalado. Geralmente afeta os pulmões e pele, mas também pode afetar o osso, próstata e outros órgãos. Era restrita ao continente norte-americano, mas nos últimos anos foram diagnosticados alguns casos autóctones na África, Ásia e Europa. (pt)
  • Blastomyces dermatitidis is the causal agent of blastomycosis, an invasive and often serious fungal infection found occasionally in humans and other animals in regions where the fungus is endemic. The causal organism is a fungus living in soil and wet, decaying wood, often in an area close to a waterway such as a lake, river or stream. Indoor growth may also occur, for example, in accumulated debris in damp sheds or shacks. The fungus is endemic to parts of eastern North America, particularly boreal northern Ontario, southeastern Manitoba, Quebec south of the St. Lawrence River, parts of the U.S. Appalachian mountains and interconnected eastern mountain chains, the west bank of Lake Michigan, the state of Wisconsin, and the entire Mississippi Valley including the valleys of some major tributaries such as the Ohio River. In addition, it occurs rarely in Africa both north and south of the Sahara Desert, as well as in the Arabian Peninsula and the Indian subcontinent. Though it has never been directly observed growing in nature, it is thought to grow there as a cottony white mold, similar to the growth seen in artificial culture at 25 °C (77 °F). In an infected human or animal, however, it converts in growth form and becomes a large-celled budding yeast. Blastomycosis is generally readily treatable with systemic antifungal drugs once it is correctly diagnosed; however, delayed diagnosis is very common except in highly endemic areas. (en)
