Aspergillus Genus and Its Various Human Superficial and Cutaneous Features

Abstract: Superficial and cutaneous aspergillosis is a rare fungal disease that is restricted to the outer layers of the skin, nails, and the outer auditory canal, infrequently invading the deeper tissue and viscera, particularly in immunocompromised patients. These mycoses are acquired through two main routes: direct traumatic inoculation or inhalation of airborne fungal spores into paranasal sinuses and lungs. Lesions are classified into three categories: otomycosis, onychomycosis, and cutaneous aspergillosis. Superfi… Show more

“…However, differences in the pathogenic fungi species directly affects the positive rate of direct microscopic examination results (Ali et al, 2018). By culturing isolated specimens, further morphological and molecular biological identifications can be carried out, and the pathogenic species can be identified (Merad et al, 2021). However, conventional identification methods are timeconsuming and prone to cross-contamination of specimens, which often leads to failure of clinicians to select effective antifungal drugs at a timely and early stage, affecting the prognosis (Hagiwara et al, 2019).…”

“…Aspergillus is a filamentous fungus that is widespread. Inhalation of fungal spores is the most common way fungi enter the body, with the sinus and lung being the most common sites of invasion 29 . Aspergillus invasion of the lungs will lead to IPA, CPA and ABPA.…”
