Wood colonizing fungi as a human pathogen
1992 - IRG/WP 92-1523
Today we recognize some 174 "pathogens" among the approximately 100000 species of fungi, which cause different diseases on man. 24 fungi which are well known as wood colonizing fungi have been identified as opportunistic human pathogen. Some of them have been found on the surface of the human body, causing superficial mycoses, or cutaneous infection, like dermatophytosis or dermatomycosis. Other cause systemic mycoses like aspergillosis, alternariosis, aureobasidiomycosis, fusariomycosis, basidiomysosis or mycotic infection of the eye or ear.
