From: Next-generation sequencing for hypothesis-free genomic detection of invasive tropical infections in poly-microbially contaminated, formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue samples – a proof-of-principle assessment

Chromoblastomycosis-associated pathogens:
 Achaetomium spp., Alternaria spp., Aureobasidium spp., Bipolaris spp., Botryosphaeria spp., Capronia spp., Chaetomium spp., Cladophialophora spp., Cladosporium spp., Cochliobolus spp., Curvularia spp., Cyphellophora spp., Davidiella spp., Discosphaerina spp., Exophiala spp., Exserohilum spp., Fonsecaea spp., Graphium spp., Hormonema spp., Hortaea spp., Lasiodiplodia spp., Lewia spp., Nattrassia spp., Ochroconis spp., Phaeacremonium spp., Phialemonium spp., Pleurostomophora spp., Phialophora spp., Pseudallescheria spp., Ramichloridium spp., Rhinocladiella spp., Sarcinomyces spp., Scedosporium spp., Scytalidium spp., Setosphaeria spp., Sporothrix spp., and Sydowia spp. [58]
Mucormycosis-associated pathogens:
 Absidia spp., Apophysomyces spp., Cokeromyces spp., Cunninghamella spp., Mortierella spp., Mucor spp., Rhizomucor spp., Rhizopus spp., Saksenaea spp., and Syncephalastrum spp. [59]
Mycetoma-associated pathogens:
 Acremonium spp., Aspergillus spp., Fusarium spp., Leptosphaeria spp., Madurella spp., Pseudallescheria spp., and Scedosporium spp. The bacteria-associated actinomycetoma can be caused by species of the genera Actinomadura spp., Nocardia spp., and Streptomyces spp. [60]
Rhinosporidiosis-like disease-associated pathogens:
 Lacazia spp., Pythium spp., and Rhinosporidium spp. [61]
