Invasive growth or systemic infections by A. oryzae in healthy humans have never been reported. In a few cases, however, isolates identified as A. oryzae have been recovered from debilitated patients. A. oryzae has therefore low pathogenic potential but may, like many other harmless microorganisms, grow in human tissue under exceptional circumstances. Allergic diseases primarily caused by A. oryzae have been reported in few cases, but probably presuppose both a sensitivity to allergenic… CONTINUE READING
