Aspergillus is a genus consisting of several hundred mold species found
in various climates worldwide. Aspergillus was first catalogued
in 1729 by the Italian priest and biologist Pier Antonio Micheli.
Viewing the fungi under a microscope, Micheli was reminded
of the shape of an aspergillum(holy water sprinkler), from Latin spargere
(to sprinkle), and named the genus accordingly.Aspergillosis is the group of diseases
caused by Aspergillus.The symptoms include fever, cough, chest pain or breathlessness.
Today "aspergillum" is also the name of an asexual spore-forming structure common to all Aspergilli;
around one-third of species are also known to have a sexual stage.Aspergillus species are highly
aerobic and are found in almost all oxygen-rich environments, where they commonly grow as
molds on the surface of a substrate, as a result of the high oxygen tension.Species of Aspergillus are important
medically and commercially. Some species can cause infection in humans and other animals.
Usually, only patients with already weakened immune systems or who suffer other lung conditions
are susceptible.Infections can be t1reated.
