Identification of a new Nosema-like microsporidian associated with myositis in an AIDS patient

Journal of Eukaryotic Microbiology 43(5): 108S

Identification of a new Nosema-like microsporidian associated with myositis in an AIDS patient

A disporous Nosema-like organism is described from the quadriceps muscle of a 31-year-old AIDS patient with myositis. This parasite most closely resembles the genus Nosema but differs from N. connori, which has been described from multiple muscle tissue types in AIDS patients, in being limited to muscle cells and having smaller spores (2.5-2.9 x 1.9-2.0 micro m in fixed tissue) and distinctive vesicular and protoplasmic complexes.
