Introduction: MEDICAL FUNGI

The first edition of this book entitled Descriptions of Medical Fungi was published
in 1992 by David Ellis, Steve Davis, Helen Alexiou, Tania Pfeiffer and Zabeta
Manatakis. The original concept was to provide all laboratories in the Royal College of
Pathologists of Australasia (RCPA) Mycology Quality Assurance Program (QAP) with
a set of description sheets covering medically important fungi. A second edition entitled
Descriptions of Medical Fungi was released in 2007 by David Ellis, Steve Davis, Helen
Alexiou, Rosemary Handke and Robyn Bartley. We now provide an updated third
edition which includes new and revised descriptions.

The genus Acremonium contains many species; most are saprophytic being isolated from dead plant material and soil. Several species including A. recifei and A. alabamense are recognized as opportunistic pathogens of man and animals, causing mycetoma, mycotic keratitis, and onychomycosis. Recently, several Acremonium-like species recognised as opportunistic pathogens have been transferred to other genera; Fusarium falciforme (formerly A. falciforme), Sarocladium kiliense (formerly A. kiliense), Gliomastic roseogriseum (formerly A. roseogriseum) and Sarocladium strictum (formerly A. strictum) (Glenn et al. 1996, Summerbell et al. 2011). RG-2 for species isolated from humans. Morphological Description: Colonies are usually slow growing, often compact and moist at first, becoming powdery, suede-like or floccose with age, and maybe white, grey, pink, rose or orange in color. Hyphae are fine and hyaline and produce mostly simple awl-shaped erect phialides with inconspicuous collarettes. Conidia are usually one-celled, hyaline or rarely pigmented, globose to cylindrical, and mostly aggregated in slimy heads at the apex of each phialide. Chlamydospores may be present.
