Disseminated Mycosis by Arthrocladium fulminans Jeopardizing a Patient with GATA2 Deficiency.

Summary of "Disseminated Mycosis by Arthrocladium fulminans Jeopardizing a Patient with GATA2 Deficiency."

GATA2 deficiency is characterized by monocytopenia, deficiency of dendritic cells, and a variable degree of lymphocytopenia affecting B cells and NK cells, leading to an enhanced risk of mycobacterial, viral, and fungal infections. Here we present a patient with a heterozygous intronic GATA2 mutation who acquired a fatal disseminated mycosis due to the black yeast-like fungus Arthrocladium fulminans following an infection with Mycobacterium sherrisii. This case illustrates that in patients with severe uncommon infections, immunodeficiency syndromes must be ruled out.

The Gata2 repression during 3T3-L1 preadipocyte differentiation is dependent on a rapid decrease in histone acetylation in response to glucocorticoid receptor activation.

The transcription factor GATA2 is an anti-adipogenic factor whose expression is downregulated during adipocyte differentiation. The present study attempted to clarify the molecular mechanism underlyin...

Circulating GATA2 mRNA is decreased among women destined to develop preeclampsia and may be of endothelial origin.

Preeclampsia is a pregnancy complication associated with elevated placental secretion of anti-angiogenic factors, maternal endothelial dysfunction and organ injury. GATA2 is a transcription factor exp...

PUVA Versus PUVA + IFN Alpha 2a in Mycosis Fungoides

The purpose of this study is to determine if combination of PUVA with interferon alpha is better than PUVA alone to treat mycosis fungoides stage Ia Ib or IIa.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A severe, rapidly fatal reaction occurring most commonly in children following an infectious illness. It is characterized by large, rapidly spreading skin hemorrhages, fever, or shock. Purpura fulminans often accompanies or is triggered by DISSEMINATED INTRAVASCULAR COAGULATION.

A disorder characterized by procoagulant substances entering the general circulation causing a systemic thrombotic process. The activation of the clotting mechanism may arise from any of a number of disorders. A majority of the patients manifest skin lesions, sometimes leading to PURPURA FULMINANS.

An essential GATA transcription factor that is expressed primarily in HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELLS.

The right of the patient or the patient's representative to make decisions with regard to the patient's dying.

A mitosporic Onygenaceae fungal genus which causes adiaspiromycosis, a pulmonary mycosis of man and rodents. One of its teleomorphs is Ajellomyces.
