Along with other causes, Fungal Infections of Lungs are more prone to occur in people with compromised immune system. The range of these rare disorders discussed in this V-Learning™ lecture encompass actinomycosis, pulmonary Nocardiosis, Histoplasmosis, and coccidioidomycosis along with cryptococcosis. Emphasis is also given to aspergillosis, ABPA, pneumocystis jiroveci Pneumonia and candidiasis.

Lecture begins by talking about actinomycosis, an Infection associated with soft tissues which spread from one part of the body to another. After that the Pathology of infection caused by nocardia specie is discussed which is pulmonary Nocardiosis, a rare but life-threatening infection. Then, the risk factors of histoplasmosis are elaborated including immuno-suppressive agents, Human Immunodeficiency Virus and hematologic malignancies.
Pathogenesis of coccidioidomycosis explained in the lecture begins when arthroconidia are inhaled and as a result immune system is stimulated and activation of PAMP and PRR is observed. Then, cryptococcosis comes under consideration the causative organism of which may gain entry through gastrointestinal tract. Next on, light is shed on blastomycosis in which after inhalation of spores, infection can give rise to symptomatic or asymptomatic Pneumonia.
Among Infectious Diseasesof fungal origin, elaboration is also given on aspergillosis which is characterized by thick mucus plugs and chest pain. Likewise, the pathology of allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis(ABPA) is delineated along with pneumocystis jiroveci Pneumonia. At the end, clinical features of candidiasis are pursued which include tachypnea, dyspnea, and chest pain.
