    Thank you for this @WillowJ, I think this might be an exciting find. I have yet to read the full paper.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mycosis

    Mycosis is a propensity for fungal infections, and may be associated with histoplasmosis. I have problems along those lines, and I was born not far from where the study was done. Hmmm, something to test? However the likelihood of a positive is under 1% even in Thailand from what I gather.

    Its interesting that they often find the problem on autopsy. We might like to make a list of possible pathogens like this at some point.
