Histoplasmosis is an infection brought on by a fungus found in bird and bat droppings. While not serious if confined to the lungs, it can be fatal if it is left untreated and allowed to spread to multiple organ systems throughout the body. Its acute phase is defined by flu-like respiratory symptoms.
Nematodes are multicellular, microscopic-sized worms of which there are approximately one million species of. The species Trichinella spiralis is found in rats, pigs and humans. It is commonly known as roundworm and is responsible for causing the Trichinosis disease. The species Baylisascaris is frequently found in wild animals and can be deadly to humans.
Ringworm—Dermatophytosis—is a contagious itching skin disease characterized by the appearance of two or more red circular patches. It is caused by fungi and typically infects the scalp or feet. The most common form is known as athlete's foot.
