Parasites and fungi

Parasites are organisms that feed and protect themselves from other living organisms called hosts. Many of these organisms can be transmitted by soil, water or person-to-person contact. Some parasites like Giardia lamblia are transmitted easily in children or adults. Many fungi and other parasites are opportunistic organisms and cause infections during prolonged antibiotic therapy and severe immunosuppression (Candida albicans, Aspergillus spp., Cryptococcus neoformans, Cryptosporidium). They are the major cause of systemic infections in immunocompromised patients. Contamination of surroundings in air by species like Aspergillus spp. which come from dust and soil is also a concern, particularly in the hospital building. Sarcoptes scabies is an ectoparasite that has repeatedly caused outbreaks in health care settings.
