The microniche of the dimorphic fungus Paracoccidiodes brasiliensisremains undefined in spite of the many attempts to isolate it from natural sources. Until recently, knowledge was also scanty concerning the presence of natural infections in animals; however, in the last decade, the fungus has been repeatedly isolated from the nine-banded armadillo, Dasypus(More)
The natural habitat of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis remains undefined but the repeated demonstration of infection by this fungus in the nine-banded armadillo Dasypus novemcinctus has opened interesting research avenues. We report here the isolation of this fungus from the spleen of a naked-tailed armadillo Cabassous centralis (Miller 1899) captured in a(More)
The precise microenvironment of Paracoccidioides brasiliensis has not yet been discovered perhaps because the methods used are not sensitive enough. We applied to this purpose the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using three sets of specific primers corresponding to two P. brasiliensis genes. This fungus as well as several other fungi, were grown and their(More)
