    Notes: Abstract Cryptococcus neoformans was isolated from 13 patients (7 females and 6 males) suffering from systemic cryptococcosis. Eight patients were suffering from central nervous system cryptococcosis and 5 were suffering from disseminated cryptococcosis. Systemic lupus erythematosus was found to be the common underlying disease in 3 patients. The results of treatment depended on the underlying diseases (7 improved, 6 died). Also, 13 isolates of C. neoformans were obtained from feces of 30 pet birds. All 26 isolates of C. neoformans were cultured in glycine cycloheximide medium and were found to be of serotypes A and D.

    Notes: Abstract Penicillium marneffei is endemic in Southeast Asia. Although Thailand is a country in this region, penicillosis marneffei was rare. It was found occasionally in immunocompromised patients. With the increasing incidence of HIV seropositivity penicillosis marneffei emerged as one of the major problems in HIV infected patients residing in Thailand. The common presenting signs were fever, anemia, hepatomegaly, lymphadenopathy, productive cough and a common skin manifestation as molluscum contagiosum-like lesions. The diseases should be considered in Thais and immunocompromised travelers with a history of visiting Thailand. Because the disease is potentially curable, prompt diagnosis and treatment will lead to better prognosis.

    Notes: Abstract An immunodiffusion test was developed for the diagnosis of basidiobolomycosis. When culture filtrate antigen (CFA) from Basidiobolus ranarum was reacted against two human patient and two rabbit antisera, 2 precipitin bands, inner (N) and outer (Y), were revealed for both patient and rabbit antisera. A line of identity was also observed between precipitin bands obtained with patient and rabbit sera. When CFA from B. ranarum (B CFA) was reacted against rabbit sera which contained antibody to Conidiobolus coronatus and Pythium insidiosum, 1 precipitin band corresponding to inner band (N) was observed. This finding showed that B. ranarum, C. coronatus and P. insidiosum shared at least one common antigen. After B CFA was absorbed with Pythium rabbit antiserum, the inner precipitin line that occurred between B CFA and rabbit antisera of Pythium and Conidiobolus disappeared. However, with Basidiobolus rabbit antiserum, the result did not change. The antigens which could be demonstrated by inner (N) and outer (Y) precipitin bands were heat stable at 56 ° C for 30 min. The titer of the antibodies specific to these antigens decreased as the lesions subsided. When B. ranarum CFA was reacted against sera from 20 apparently normal persons, 20 diabetes mellitus patients, 5 aspergillosis patients, 2 candidosis patients and 3 pythiosis patients, no precipitin band was found. B. ranarum CFA was also treated with each rabbit antiserum specific to Candida albicans, Malassezia furfur and Aspergillus fumigatus. No precipitin bands occurred with any of these antisera. Thus, this test was found to be practical, sensitive and specific, and can be used to monitor patients infected with Basidiobolus ranarum.

    Notes: Abstract An immunodiffusion test was developed for diagnosing subcutaneous and systemic pythiosis in humans. When culture filtrate antigen (CFA) from P. insidiosum was reacted against patient and rabbit antisera, 1–5 precipitin bands occured both in patient and rabbit antisera, and a line of identity also occured between patient and rabbit sera. When control P. insidiosum CFA was reacted with 30 apparently normal persons, 20 Thalassemia patients, 2 candidosis and 5 aspergillosis patients, no precipitin bands were found. P. insidiosum CFA also tested with rabbit antibodies to B. dermatitidis, C. immitis, H. capsulatum, P. brasiliensis, C. albicans, M. furfur and A. fumigatus revealed no cross reactions. This test is practical, sensitive and specific.

    Notes: Abstract A total of 410 cases of pityriasis versicolor were studied in the Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Bangkok, Thailand, during January to December 1987. These comprised 1% of all skin disorders, while infection caused by fungus comprised 17%. Most persons infected with pityriasis versicolor were 12–21 years old (mean age 20 years) and 47% were male and 53% were female. The common sites of infection were back, arms, face and trunk. The colors of lesions found were white (83%), brown (7%), pink (6%) and ashy (4%). Both forms of M. furfur were isolated, the ovale form in 97% and the orbiculare form in 3% of cases. The colors of the lesions did not depend on the form of the organism. Mycological and immunological studies confirmed that the two forms were different stages in the complex developmental cycle of a single species.
