Pulmonary penicilliosis

Penicillium widely exists in nature. Some can produce antibiotics, such as penicillin and a variety of enzymes and organic acids. Most of them are usually contaminated bacteria, and a few strains can cause penicilliosis and pulmonary penicilliosis under certain conditions. It is nonspecific, similar to pulmonary tuberculosis or pulmonary aspergillosis. It can have symptoms such as cough, expectoration, hemoptysis, dyspnea, fever, loss of appetite, weight loss, systemic failure and so on. Allergic bronchopulmonary penicilliosis is caused by inhaling a large amount of Penicillium spores in a short time. It can show temporary pulmonary infiltration, increase of eosinophils in peripheral blood and sputum, intermittent airway obstruction, chest tightness, throat itching pain, asthma, urticaria and so on. If the brain is involved, there may be ocular fundus punctate or flame bleeding, insanity, convulsion, coma and other central nervous symptoms.
