Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 32)


Seit Entdeckung des Erregers der Cryptococcose durch Busse (24, 25, 26) und Buschke (23) vor rund 65 Jahren (7) ist diese weltweit verbreitete, durch einen Sproßpilz verursachte Krankheit annähernd 500mal beim Menschen nachgewiesen worden [vgl. (37, 42, 66, 111 u. a.)], sporadisch und epizootisch ferner beim Milchvieh sowie vereinzelt beim Affen, Schwein, Pferd, Hund, Katze, Meerschweinchen und bei anderen Tierarten [Zusammenfassung s. (61, 111)].
