What are some fungal diseases transmitted by animal feces?

10 months ago

Bat and pigeon feces can carry Histoplasma capsulatum, the fungus agent of histoplasmosis. The infection is transmitted through inhalation of contaminated dust in places visited by these animals (caves, tunnels, squares, roofs, etc.). Cryptococcosis is another fungal disease transmitted by pigeon excrement.
