This volume, dedicated to one organism, is an example of what might be produced through careful study of existing literature. This book might well stimulate similar studies of other troublesome biologic malefactors. The study covers only data pertaining to Cryptococcus neoformans and its disease in man, Torulosis.

Cryptococcosis is a fungal infection caused by inhaling the fungus Cryptococcus neoformans, which is primarily found in soils enriched with pigeon moist or desiccated pigeon dropping, C.

neoformans may remain viable for 2 years or longer. Two varieties of C. neoformans exist – neoformans and gattii.C. neoformans var neoformans is the most common variety. Human disease associated only with Cryptococcus neoformans; following inhalation of the organism, alveolar macrophages ingest the yeast; cryptococcal polysaccharide capsule has antiphagocytic properties and may be immunosuppressive; anti-phagocytic properties of the capsule block recognition of the yeast by phagocytes and inhibit leukocyte migration into Cryptococcosis area Cryptococcosis fungal replication.

Abstract. Busse-Buschke’s disease, earlier referred to also as torulosis, European blastomycosis, and other terms, is a deep, visceral, systemic, or generalized mycosis caused by the fungus Cryptococcus neoformans (Sanfelice) Vutllemin, Cryptococcosis has been reported from almost all countries of the world and is the most frequent systemic mycosis found in man in Europe (Matheis).

This chapter begins with the history of Cryptococcus neoformans. By the end of the 19th century three seminal observations had been made regarding C.

neoformans. First, the organism had been recovered from lesions in humans and animals, establishing its potential to cause disease. Second, the organism had been recovered from the environment, establishing that it was free-living. In the first years of clinical cases of Cryptococcus neoformans, the infection was described in most organs of the human and animal host.

The clinical presentations of human cryptococcosis may be varied, and because of the variety of signs and symptoms, clinical diagnosis without laboratory studies can be difficult at times in both high- and low-risk patients.

Cryptococcosis, also known as torulosis or European blastomycosis, is caused by a yeast like fungus, cryptococcus neoformans, which is an encapsulated, unimorphic fungus that is ubiquitous in soil and particularly abundant in pigeon excreta 1.

Cryptococcal infection can occur both in patients with normal and compromised immunity. Majority of. Cryptococcosis (synonym: torulosis, European blastomycosis) is characterized as an infectious dis-ease induced by Cryptococcus neoformans fungus usually with a primary focus in the lungs and with characteristic spread into the cerebral dura mater and rarely into the kidneys, prostate, liver, bones and skin.

The disease occurs sporadically; 2 times. CONDITION: Cryptococcosis.
