82181-9Cryptococcus gattii+neoformans DNA [Presence] in Cerebral spinal fluid by NAA with non-probe detectionActive

Term Description

This assay detects the presence of nucleic acid sequences from the Cryptococcus neoformans+gattii DNA in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) using PCR and non-probe based detection methods, such as melt curve analysis. The assay does not distinguish between the two species. This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, BioFire's FilmArray Meningitis/Encephalitis Panel, which is intended for the detection and identification of nucleic acids from multiple bacteria, viruses, and yeast directly from CSF obtained via lumbar puncture from individuals with signs and/or symptoms of meningitis and/or encephalitis.

Part Description

LP212413-1   Cryptococcus gattii+neoformans
Cryptococcus neoformans and C. gattii are fungi species known to cause pulmonary and systemic cryptococcosis. C. neoformans causes severe meningitis and meningo-encephalitis in patients with advanced HIV/AIDS. C. gattii is found primarily in tropical and subtropical climates and is capable of causing cryptococcosis in non-immunocompromised patients. More recently, an outbreak of C. gattii occurred in British Columbia, possibly due to global warming.[PMCID:PMC535360] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
