Part Descriptions

LP17137-8   Pneumocystis jiroveci
Pneumocystis jiroveci is a fungus. This parasitic organism was earlier classified as a protozoan, and still is sometimes called by its former name Pneumocystis carinii. It causes the disease pneumocystis pneumonia (PCP), which afflicts people with weakened immune systems, such as children, the elderly, and especially AIDS patients, in whom it is most commonly observed today. It was first recognized in institutional epidemics among malnourished children and infants. The actual life cycle is unknown. Debate continues as to whether or not the parasite is transmitted through latent infection or active infection. Historically it was thought to be latent, with a duration of up to a year, but recent studies suggest an active state. Symptoms of infection include shortness of breath, nonproductive cough, and low grade fever. Death by asphyxia is a consequent threat, as in any pneumonia.
