Fungal pneumonia

Nature:

Fungal pneumonia is produced by various endemic or opportunistic fungi. This causes fungal infections, such as histoplasmosis, coccidioidomycosis, and blastomycosis that occur after inhaling spores or conidia or reactivating a latent infection. It has to be noted that fungal pneumonia cases are quite difficult to diagnose.

Incidence:

Fungal pneumonia is prevalent in Mexico and other South American countries, as well as African countries.
