Summaries for African Histoplasmosis

Disease Ontology : 12 A histoplasmosis that results in systemic fungal infection, has material basis in Histoplasma capsulatum var duboisii, transmitted by airborne spores and results in formation of nodules, results in formation of ulcers and results in formation of osteolytic bone lesions.

MalaCards based summary : African Histoplasmosis is related to histoplasmosis and osteomyelitis. An important gene associated with African Histoplasmosis is RHNO1 (RAD9-HUS1-RAD1 Interacting Nuclear Orphan 1), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Circadian entrainment and Regulation of TP53 Activity. Affiliated tissues include bone, skin and colon.
