A Fungus Amongus

Exophiala dermatitidis is a thermophilic black yeast, and a member of the Herpotrichiellaceae. While the species is only found at low abundance in nature, metabolically active strains are commonly isolated in saunas, steam baths, and dish washers. Exophiala dermatitidis only rarely causes infection in humans, however cases have been reported around the world. In East Asia, the species has caused lethal brain infections in young and otherwise healthy individuals. The fungus has been known to cause cutaneous and subcutaneous phaeohyphomycosis, and as a lung colonist in people with cystic fibrosis in Europe. In 2002, an outbreak of systemic E. dermatitidis infection occurred in women who had received contaminated steroid injections at North Carolina hospitals.

Re: A Fungus Amongus

Sometimes yes, and sometimes no.
This particular fungus can be on the surface of the skin, subcutaneous, or systemic.
Skin treatments are usually effective, but subcutaneous (infecting tissue under the skin) is another story. Subcutaneous infections can have as high as a 40% fatality rate.
Systemic (when it invades the entire system) can be up to 90% fatal. It likes lungs the most.
It's extremely resistant to anti-fungal medications and often a doctor must create a "cocktail" of several different anti-fungals, steroids, and antibiotics.

You sure are right about that, Kel. We're already almost out of anti-biotics.
They actually have that listed as 1 of then ten most feasible ways the human race will go extinct.

I had to paste this first before I could put anything else on the page. This is just one reference of many.

Thanks, DaFuq for the post. Freaking scary.
