Do You Have Young Children? They Could Be In Severe Risk Of This Terminal Disease That Just Reached The US.

Candida auris.  The name might sound familiar because it is related to a common ailment that afflicts newborns and the elderly.  But this one has a mortality rate as high as 50%.  If one you or your loved one catches it, even if healthy, there is very little that can be done. Candida auris can technically be described as a yeast infection, like oral thrush it targets those that typically infects those that are somewhat immuno-compromised.  

Traditionally these victims are able to be treated with a simple regimen of antifungal medications.  It’s not a pleasant process but it gets the job done (after a heavy does of vomiting). Unfortunately, Candida auris just isn’t so simple. C. auris has a significantly troubling factor that makes it an outlier to all other yeast infections in the genus: it is resistant to all known multidrug therapies and it is associated with a high mortality rate.

Making it more complicated, doctors aren’t exactly sure how it transmits yet.  They have a hunch though and it’s pretty damn scary.  This troubling yeast infection spreads from the host (patient) to the surfaces surrounding them and eventually throughout their living quarters. Medscape has some important information:

This fungus is difficult to identify and is relatively resistant to most antifungal agents, in part because it forms an antifungal biofilm. The CDC issued an alert concerning this fungus after on an outbreak occurred in England that affected 40 patients in the intensive care unit, despite aggressive infection control efforts. All cases should be reported to the CDC.

Where did this deadly parasite come from?  Good question.  The earliest known documented case of C. auris was in Japan in 2009.  It was isolated from the discharge that was expelled from a patient’s ear and then isolated in a lab.  While typical yeast infections only afflict the elderly and immunosuppressed individuals (like those with HIV) this infection has been known to target a wider variety of hosts for “colonization.” These hosts include: diabetes patients, patients that have undergone recent surgery or are prescribed antibiotics, and those that use a catheter.

Antibiotics and similar medicines are regulated for a reason.  It’s not simply because the government is afraid you will poison yourself (which is often not the case and there is little recreational use)  but rather because they fear that wide use of antibiotics and antifungal medications will result in mutations in the infecting agent that make them immune to the medication.  But it is happening anyways:

Nearly three dozen people in the United States have been diagnosed with a deadly and highly drug-resistant fungal infection since federal health officials first warned U.S. clinicians last June to be on the lookout for the emerging pathogen that has been spreading around the world.

What is the risk of dying?  Well that’s a tough question.  In some countries the mortality rate is as high as 50%.  In the United States, there have been four deaths so far.
