Under har jeg samlet noen kjente medisinske årsaker til en del sykdommer, symptomer, tilstander, (…). Noen av symptomene er like med de symptomene noen ME-pasienter har.
A. niger is less likely to cause human disease than some other Aspergillus species, but if large amounts of spores are inhaled, a serious lung disease, aspergillosis can occur. Aspergillosis is particularly frequent among horticultural workers who inhale peat dust, which can be rich in Aspergillus spores. Less commonly, it has been found on the walls of ancient Egyptian tombs and can be inhaled when the area is disturbed. A. niger is one of the most common causes of otomycosis (fungal ear infections), which can cause pain, temporary hearing loss and, in severe cases, damage to the ear canal and tympanic membrane.
Q fever: It is considered possibly the most infectious disease in the world, as a human being can be infected by a single bacterium [http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/qfever/].
