What you need to know about Acute disseminative histoplasma infection
The first case of Acute Disseminated Histoplasmoses in the UK was reported on Friday.
This is the first case reported in the country.
The case is believed to have been a migrant from Syria and is believed not to have had a history of illness or symptoms prior to arriving in the Republic.
The disease is usually diagnosed by the presence of high-risk bacteria in the body, and symptoms can include a cough and a runny nose.
The National Health Service (NHS) in the capital, London, confirmed the diagnosis with a blood test on Thursday.
Acute Disserminated histovitis (ADS) is a rare form of disseminated disease that affects around 20,000 people a year.
It is thought to be caused by the same bacteria that cause Acute Plasmodium falciparum infections in the same way as Plasmatomyces causes Parotitis.
People with Acute Persistent Co-infection (APCC) have the same type of ADS, but there is no vaccine or treatment available.
It is estimated that about 200,000 cases of the disease occur in the world each year.
