CryptococcosisCryptococcus neoformans: Cryptococcus neoformans is an encapsulated yeast and an obligate aerobe that can live in both plants and animals. Its teleomorph is Filobasidiella neoformans, a filamentous fungus belonging to the class Tremellomycetes.Cryptococcus: Cryptococcus (Greek for "hidden sphere") is a genus of fungus. These fungi grow in culture as yeasts.Cryptococcus gattii: Cryptococcus gattii, formerly known as Cryptococcus neoformans var gattii, is an encapsulated yeast found primarily in tropical and subtropical climates. Its teleomorph is Filobasidiella bacillispora, a filamentous fungus belonging to the class Tremellomycetes.VoriconazoleFluconazolePrimary cutaneous aspergillosis: Primary cutaneous aspergillosis is a rare skin condition most often occurring at the site of intravenous cannulas in immunosuppressed patients.Immunocompetence: Immunocompetence is the ability of the body to produce a normal immune response following exposure to an antigen. Immunocompetence is the opposite of immunodeficiency or immuno-incompetent or immuno-compromised.Eosinophilic cellulitis: (ILDS L98.300)Pug: The Pug is a breed of dog with a wrinkly, short-muzzled face and curled tail.

The pathogenicity of an organism - its ability to cause disease - is determined by its virulence factors.Septic abortion: A septic abortion or septic miscarriage is a form of miscarriage that is associated with a serious uterine infection. The infection carries risk of spreading infection to other parts of the body and cause sepsis, a grave risk to the life of the woman.BenzotriazoleLatex fixation test: The latex agglutination method is used clinically in the identification and typing of many important microorganisms. These tests are based on and utilize the patient's antigen-antibody immune response.
