cerebral aspergillosis caused by neosartorya hiratsukae, brazil.we report the first case of infection by neosartorya hiratsukae, an ascomycete in which the conidial state resembles aspergillus fumigatus. the fungus caused a brain infection in a brazilian woman, who died despite itraconazole treatment. diagnosis was established by direct microscopic examination, computed tomographic scan, and magnetic resonance imaging of the brain, and repeated cultures from the lesions. the in vitro antifungal susceptibility of the isolate is provided.200212194781

allergic fungal rhinosinusitis caused by neosartorya hiratsukae from india.we report here a case of allergic fungal rhinosinusitis caused by neosartorya hiratsukae. this fungus was never previously been isolated from any case with fungal rhinosinusitis. the identification of this agent was confirmed by comparing the nucleotide sequence of the its region of ribosomal dna with that in the genbank dna database. identification of n. hiratsukae on the basis of colony morphology and microscopic feature may be difficult due to similarities with a few aspergillus species. scan ...200919212892

diversity and specificity of microsatellites within aspergillus section fumigati.microsatellites (or short tandem repeats, strs) are the genetic markers of choice for studying aspergillus fumigatus molecular epidemiology due to its reproducibility and high discrimination power. however, the specificity of these markers must be investigated in a group of isolates from closely related species. the aim of this work was to test a microsatellite-based pcr multiplex previously designed for a. fumigatus in a set of species belonging to section fumigati, namely aspergillus fumigatia ...201222838495

aspergilli with neosartorya-type ascospores: heat resistance and effect of sugar concentration on growth and spoilage incidence in berry products.this study focused on four different heat resistant aspergilli: two strains of aspergillus hiratsukae (≡neosartorya hiratsukae), one strain of aspergillus neoglaber (≡neosartorya glabra), and one strain of aspergillus thermomutatus (≡neosartorya pseudofischeri), all isolated from spoiled pasteurized products. their heat-resistance, the sugar concentration limiting their germination and growth in berry-based media, and a possible relation between the contamination levels of the raw materials used ...201728772258
pre-contamination of new gypsum wallboard with potentially harmful fungal species.gypsum wallboard is a popular building material, but is also very frequently overgrown by stachybotrys chartarum after severe and/or undetected water damage. the purpose of this study was to determine whether stachybotrys and other fungi frequently isolated from wet gypsum wallboard are already present in the panels directly from the factory. surface-disinfected gypsum disks were wetted with sterile water, sealed, and incubated for 70 days. the results showed that neosartorya hiratsukae (≡ asper ...201726970063

aspergillus fumigatus-related species in clinical practice.aspergillus fumigatus is the main etiologic agent of invasive aspergillosis (ia). other aspergillus species belonging to the section fumigati (a. fumigatus complex) may occasionally be the cause of ia. these strains are often misidentified, as they cannot be distinguished from a. fumigatus by conventional morphological analysis and sequencing methods. this lack of recognition may have important consequences as these a. fumigatus-related species often display some level of intrinsic resistance to ...201627242710

neosartorya hiratsukae peritonitis through continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis.fungal peritonitis is a rare, potentially lethal, complication of continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (capd). we report what we believe to be the first confirmed neosartorya hiratsukae capd-related peritonitis case in europe. the patient died, despite early removal of the peritoneal catheter and antifungal therapy. this report highlights the impact of emerging fungal pathogens and the importance of early diagnosis on the outcome in capd-related fungal peritonitis.201020395379

carbon source utilization and isoenzyme analysis as taxonomic aids for toxigenic neosartorya species and their relatives.collection strains representing species belonging to the genus neosartorya and its relatives from section fumigati of the genus aspergillus were compared for some of their phenotypic features. the examination of both the carbon source utilization and isoenzyme patterns provided a useful tool for clustering these strains. many species (e.g. neosartorya hiratsukae, n. quadricincta, n. spinosa, n. aurata, n. aureola) could readily be distinguished from other species based on their specific isoenzym ...19979284973
