AbstractOBJECTIVES: Pneumocystis jirovecii is usually considered an opportunistic pathogen. However, recent studies show that P. jirovecii can also be detected in the nonimmunocompromised populations. This fungus can stimulate pulmonary inflammation, and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. In this study, we aim to study the prevalence of P. jirovecii in patients with acute and chron…
