Pilzinfektionen und Parasitosen

  • E. Schmutzhard
  • B. Pfausler


Pilze verursachen eine Erkrankung des Nervensystems entweder durch Direktinvasion des Gewebes, durch die Freisetzung von Toxinen oder durch die Auslösung pathologischer immunologischer Reaktionen. Die Empfindlichkeit gegenüber Pilzinfektionen wird zum überwiegenden Teil durch die immunologische Kompetenz bedingt, wenngleich geographische, klimatische, berufs-expositionelle und möglicherweise auch hormonelie Faktoren eine zusätzliche wichtige Rolle spielen. Infektionen des Nervensystems werden durch Zy-gomyzeten, Askomyzeten, Basidiomyzeten und Deuteromyzeten verursacht. Allerdings kann praktisch jeder Pilz bei Immuninkompetenz krankheitsverur-sachend sein.
