A novel actinomycete, strain OFN S31(T), was isolated from a complex biofilm in the Altamira Cave, Spain. A polyphasic study was carried out to clarify the taxonomic position of this strain. Phylogenetic analysis with 16S rRNA gene sequences of representatives of the genera Corynebacterium, Dietzia, Gordonia, Millisia, Mycobacterium, Nocardia, Rhodococcus,(More)
We report a case of endophthalmitis caused by the fungus Lasiodiplodia theobromae. A 68-year-old man was referred to the hospital for right ocular pain since experiencing right ocular branch trauma 2 weeks before. The best-corrected acuity was limited to hand motion. Slit-lamp examination showed a large corneal abscess and an anterior chamber reaction. The(More)
Human infection caused by Phaeoacremonium parasiticum is increasingly being reported. However, only a few case reports show its role as a soil-related contaminant of kidney recipients. We report here a case of a subcutaneous infection by P. parasiticum in a transplanted man. After 4 years, he reported a nonpainful nodule on his forefinger. It was surgically(More)
A novel actinomycete strain, OFN S17(T), was isolated from a sample collected from Altamira Cave, Cantabria, Spain. This strain was identified by using a polyphasic taxonomic approach. The 16S rRNA, hsp65 and sod gene sequences of the strain were determined and compared with those of representative Nocardia species. The results showed that strain OFN S17(T)(More)
BACKGROUND Mexico has the largest number of clinical cases of actinomycetoma in North and South America. Species originally identified by less specific methods have been recently reclassified as other known species or as new species. OBJECTIVE To assess, by 16S rRNA gene sequencing and phenotypic methods, the species distribution of 18 human clinical(More)
Currently for bacterial identification and classification the rrs gene encoding 16S rRNA is used as a reference method for the analysis of strains of the genus Nocardia. However, it does not have enough polymorphism to differentiate them at the species level. This fact makes it necessary to search for molecular targets that can provide better(More)
Bacterial mycetoma is a neglected disease mainly observed in tropical area countries and typically associated with rural conditions, making its presence in developed countries of temperate climate areas rare. However, we report the first case of an autochthonous mycetoma case in continental France that originated from a new Nocardia species. A Gram-positive(More)
