Adiaspiromycosis was identified in 6 animals in the examination of the lungs of 90 large carnivores. Emmonsia crescens (Chrysosporium parvum var. crescens) was demonstrated as the causative agent in 5 cases of disease — in the badger (Meles meles), the otter (Lutra lutra) and the fox (Vulpes vulpes). E. parva was demonstrated in the remaining case of(More)
The study of adiaspiromycosis in 8 species of free living mustelid carnivores (266 specimens) revealed the average intensity of infection to be 41.4%. The highest incidence rate was found in the exoanthropic species Putorius eversmanni (73.1 %) and Martes martes (72.2%) while the lowest was observed in the hemisynanthropic species Putorius putorius (30.6%).(More)
The definition of dermatophytes characterizing these organisms as microscopic fungi parasitizing keratinized tissues of man and animals holds true in general only. Several species, whose parasitic capacities are questionable or whose pathogenicity has never been demonstrated, are classified with this heterogenous group of filamentous fungi. The reasons for(More)
In this work the dynamics of growth and development of E. crescens adiaspores is described. The authors ascertained the budding as a form of multiplication of these elements. The differences between the growth speed of adiaspores in vitro and in vivo were established. The adiaspores germinate if the incubation temperature is lowered to 25° C and new(More)
Apparently healthy hair of insectivores and rodents originating from two regions situated at different altitudes in Austria was examined on the presence of dermatophytes. Dermatophytes Microsporum persicolor, Trichophyton georgiae, T. mentagrophytes var. erinacei, T. mentagrophytes var. mentagrophytes and T. terrestre were recovered from the hair of 27(More)
In searching for keratinophilic fungi especially Dermatophytes in the soil and on small mammals in Czechoslovakia a number of fungi were found which correspond with descriptions of some species of the genusChrysosporium Corda 1833 as presented inCarmichael's paper (1962). Brief descriptions of these isolates are given. This study can add to knowledge of(More)
