People can get Histoplasmosis, a fungal infection caused by Histoplasma, after breathing in the microscopic fungal spores from the air. Although most people who breathe in the spores don’t get sick, those who do may have a fever, cough, and fatigue. Many people who get histoplasmosis will get better on their own without medication, but in some people, such as those who have weakened immune systems, the infection can become severe. This Giemsa-stained photomicrograph of a liver tissue specimen, shows several Histoplasma capsulatum fungal organisms in their yeast-stage of development.

Vibriosis causes an estimated 80,000 illnesses and 100 deaths in the United States every year. People with vibriosis become infected by consuming raw or undercooked seafood or exposing a wound to seawater. Most infections occur from May through October when water temperatures are warmer. This colorized scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image shows a flagellated Vibrio vulnificus bacterium magnified 26367x. Learn more: www.cdc.gov/vibrio/

Marburg hemorrhagic fever is a rare but severe hemorrhagic fever which affects both humans and non-human primates. It was first recognized in 1967 after simultaneous outbreaks in laboratories in Marburg and Frankfurt, Germany, and in Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia). The virus is carried by the African fruit bat. These bats don’t show any symptoms of Marburg when they are infected but they can infect people and other primates, making them seriously ill. Cases are often fatal. Since Marburg was first identified, outbreaks have appeared sporadically throughout Africa. Laboratory confirmed cases have been reported in Uganda, Zimbabwe, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Angola, and South Africa. Some of the outbreaks started with male mine workers working in bat-infested mines. The virus is then transmitted within their communities through cultural practices, under-protected family care settings, and under-protected health care staff. Cases have also occurred outside Africa but they are infrequent and often tied to travelers who visited – and were infected – in Africa.
