Summaries for Microsporidiosis

Disease Ontology : 12 An opportunistic mycosis that results in systemic fungal infection in immunocompromised people, has material basis in Microsporidia phylum members.

MalaCards based summary : Microsporidiosis, also known as infection by microsporida, is related to encephalitozoonosis and diarrhea. An important gene associated with Microsporidiosis is PMP2 (Peripheral Myelin Protein 2), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Imatinib Pathway, Pharmacokinetics/Pharmacodynamics and Irinotecan Pathway. The drugs Zidovudine and Lamivudine have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney, small intestine and testes.
