Aspergillus fumigatus - Definition


Definition


Aspergillus fumigatus is a mushroom of the Aspergillus type. Its spores are the cause of fungal infestations like aspergillosis and aspergilloma in which the mushroom forms a mass often on the lung. Aspergillus fumigatus is a carrier of toxic substances not generally dangerous for people in good health, but dangerous for people who are immunocompromised, meaning their body's defenses are diminished (auto-immune deficiency, medications that lower the defenses...). Pulmonary aspergillosis is the most frequent form in men. The treatment rests on medications that eliminate the mushroom.
