“…33,36 In the biodiversity of Latin America fauna, of the actual 20 known armadillo's species, 17 are only found in Brazil and have been little studied. It has been shown that these animals can be natural carriers of important pathogens such as Trypanosoma cruzi, 37,38 Histoplasma capsulatum, 39 Leishmania naiffi, 40 Toxoplasma gondii, 41 and Paracoccidioides brasiliensis. [42][43][44] The nine-banded armadillos, family Dasypodidae, order Cingulata, Superorder Xenarthra, 13 were introduced in North America very recently, around the year 1880.…”

“…Os tatus ainda são conhecidos por abrigar diversos agentes patogênicos, sendo considerado "sentinela" para pesquisa do nicho ecológico, entre eles Trypanossoma cruzi (Barreto, 1963;Kluyber, 2016;Lainson et al, 1979), Toxoplasma gondii (Kluyber, 2016;Sogorb et al, 1977), Leishmania naiffi (Naiff et al, 1991), espécies de Sarcocystis e Eimeria, Piroplasma (Diniz et al, 1997), Nocardia brasiliensis (Gezuele, 1972), Sporothrix schenckii (Kaplan et al, 1982), Histoplasma capsulatum var. capsulatum (Arias et al, 1982), Coccidioides immitis (Eulalio et al, 2001), Paecilomyces lilacinus (Gordon, 1984;Vergara & Martinez, 1998) Leptospira sp., Paracoccidioides brasiliensis (Bagagli et al, 1998;Kluyber, 2016;Naiff, 1986) e Mycobacterium leprae de forma natural e experimental (Deps et al, 2003;Loughry et al, 2009;Morgan & Loughry, 2009;Opromolla et al, 1980;Pedrini, 2007;Perez-Heydrich et al, 2016;Rosa et al, 2005). Todavia, não está esclarecido todo seu potencial de transmissão zoonótico (Deps et al, 2003).…”

“…In the Americas, bats are frequently and commonly infected with H. capsulatum (Taylor et al, 1999) with histoplasmosis having been reported in Desmodus rotundus (Veloso et al, 2014), Molossus molossus (Dias et al, 2011;dos Santos et al, 2018;Veloso et al, 2014), Tadarida brasiliensis (González-González et al, 2014;Teixeira et al, 2016;Veloso et al, 2014), Molossus rufus, Nyctinomops macrotis (Dias et al, 2011), Histiotus velatus (Veloso et al, 2014) Almeida, 1982), opossum (Didelphis marsupialis), paca (Agouti paca) (Naiff, Mok, & Naiff, 1985), sloth (Choloepus didactylus) and spiny rat (Proechimys guyanensis) (Lainson & Shaw, 1975). Hence, to the best of our knowledge, the present study is the first to report H. capsulatum infection in Carollia perspicillata and in Vampyriscus bidens.…”

“…The Brazilian Amazon region has a wide diversity of chiroptera species; however, to date, there were no reports of H. capsulatum research in bats of this region. Earlier reports of H. capsulatum in this region date from several decades ago and pertain to other wild mammals, such as armadillo ( Dasypus novemcinctus ) (Arias, Naiff, Naiff, Mok, & Almeida, 1982), opossum ( Didelphis marsupialis ), paca ( Agouti paca ) (Naiff, Mok, & Naiff, 1985), sloth ( Choloepus didactylus ) and spiny rat ( Proechimys guyanensis ) (Lainson & Shaw, 1975). Hence, to the best of our knowledge, the present study is the first to report H. capsulatum infection in Carollia perspicillata and in Vampyriscus bidens .…”
