Rhinosporidium Seeberi


Presentation

  • The present study describes, for the first time, the clinical and the ultrastructural findings of a rare case presented with concurrent conjunctival infection of Rhinosporidium seeberi and a papovavirus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We present a case of conjunctival rhinosporidiosis in an 11-year-old boy from western New York state, the first such report from the temperate zones of North America.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Fluorescence in situ hybridization and R. seeberi- specific PCR showed that this unique 18S rRNA sequence is also present in other tissues infected with R. seeberi. Our data support the R. seeberi phylogeny recently suggested by another group.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • […] of the lacrimal sac presenting as IOID.[ijo.in]
  • Nasal obstruction and epistaxis were the most common presenting complaints.[researchgate.net]
Regurgitation
  • Regurgitation on pressure on the lacrimal sac (ROPLAS) was negative and syringing showed the lacrimal drainage system to be bilaterally patent. A clinical diagnosis of right partial nasolacrimal duct obstruction with preseptal cellulitis was made.[ijo.in]

Treatment

  • Treatment is essentially surgical excision of the mass.[web.archive.org]
  • Binding of host immunoglobins Treatment: Surgery is the treatment of choice. Rhinosporidial mass can be removed intranasally, the only problem being bleeding. Post operatively the patient is started on T.[drtbalu.com]
  • Case reports 29 year old man from India with progressively increasing nasal obstruction ( Case of the Week #97 ) Treatment Surgical excision, may recur No effective medical treatment Gross description Hyperplastic, polypoid, red, granular masses of nasal[pathologyoutlines.com]
  • Its mainstay of treatment is surgery.[parjournal.net]

Prognosis

  • It is also known to arrest the maturation of sporangia and promote fibrosis in stroma Prognosis[web.archive.org]
  • Prognosis is excellent, but recurrence is not unusual Keywords Computed tomography scan, lacrimal sac, Rhinosporidium seeberi , rhinosporidiosis Introduction Rhinosporidiosis is a chronic granulomatous disease affecting the mucous membrane primarily.[parjournal.net]

Etiology

  • The etiologic agent, Rhinosporidium seeberi, commonly produces granulomatous inflammation of the upper respiratory mucosa. Most reported ocular infections have occurred in hot, dry climatic regions.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • It is the only method for etiologic diagnosis of some organisms such as Pneumocystis jiroveci (formerly Pneumocystis carinii), Loboa loboi, and Rhinosporidium seeberi .[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • It is the only method for etiologic diagnosis of some organisms such as Pneumocystis jiroveci (formerly Pneumocystis carinii), Loboa loboi, and Rhinosporidium seeberi.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • The association of a specific etiologic agent with certain types of nasal polyps was demonstrated independently by Seeber 1 and by O'Kinealy. 2 The agent in question is Rhinosporidium seeberi, or Rhinosporidium kinealyi.[jamanetwork.com]
  • This is the first extensive complete treatise of this topic which includes the most current information on the history, immunology, physiology, etiology, ecology, molecular biology and therapy of this exotic disease.[amazon.com]

Epidemiology

  • The stimulation of R. seeberi's sporangia by water supports the epidemiological studies that had linked this pathogen with wet environments. It also explains, in part, its affinities for mucous membranes in infected hosts.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • [Journal Article] JF J Fungi (Basel) 2018 Jun 25; 4(3) Arsenijević VA, Denning DW For the first time, we aimed to estimate the burden of serious fungal infections or diseases (SFD) and highlight national epidemiological features in Serbia.[unboundmedicine.com]
  • The epidemiology, ecology, clinical aspects, diagnosis, pathology, and management of the patient are then explained. The second section is concerned with animal disease.[amazon.com]
  • Epidemiological data on the prevalence rates of rhinosporidiosis in Southern India are seemingly scarce.[researchgate.net]
  • These findings are applicable in both clinical and laboratory practice, while the basic advances have implications in further work on experimental pathogenicity, the biology of R. seeberi, and on the epidemiology and pathogenesis of rhinosporidiosis.[doi.org]

Pathophysiology

  • Clinical features, pathophysiology, and management of lacrimal sac rhinosporidiosis have been discussed.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Clinical features, pathophysiology, and management of lacrimal sac rhinosporidiosis have been discussed. Keywords: Dacryocystectomy, oculosporidiosis, Rhinosporidium How to cite this article: Mukherjee B, Mohan A, Sumathi V, Biswas J.[ijo.in]
  • Pathophysiology Local infection from exposure to the organism appears to be implicated in the pathogenesis of R. seeberi , but thus far, it has not been possible to intentionally infect an animal model (2).[webeye.ophth.uiowa.edu]
