Summaries for Fungal Meningitis

CDC : 3 Fungal meningitis is rare and usually caused by fungus spreading through blood to the spinal cord. Although anyone can get fungal meningitis, people with weakened immune systems, like those with an HIV infection or cancer, are at increased risk.

MalaCards based summary : Fungal Meningitis, also known as meningitis, fungal, is related to cryptococcal meningitis and meningitis. An important gene associated with Fungal Meningitis is IFNG (Interferon Gamma), and among its related pathways/superpathways are NF-kappaB Signaling and Type II interferon signaling (IFNG). The drugs Amphotericin B and Fluconazole have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, testes and brain, and related phenotype is cardiovascular system.

Disease Ontology : 12 A meningitis that has material basis in a fungal infection.
