Summer-type relapsing fever (hypersensitivity pneumonitis) secondary to Cladosporium herbarum in the domestic environment

'Summer-type relapsing fever' is the most prevalent form of hypersensitivity pneumonitis in Japan. It is usually caused by hypersensitivity to Trichosporon cutaneum - a seasonal mould which thrives in homes with damp, decayed wood, damp mats and bedclothes. The disease has been rarely described outside Japan. We report the first documented case of summer-type hypersensitivity pneumonitis in Europe - in this case caused by hypersensitivity to the mould Cladosporium herbarum.

Abstract

'Summer-type relapsing fever' is the most prevalent form of hypersensitivity pneumonitis in Japan. It is usually caused by hypersensitivity to Trichosporon cutaneum - a seasonal mould which thrives in homes with damp, decayed wood, damp mats and bedclothes. The disease has been rarely described outside Japan. We report the first documented case of summer-type hypersensitivity pneumonitis in Europe - in this case caused by hypersensitivity to the mould Cladosporium herbarum.
