These were seminal contributions to stimulate interest in to what extent filamentous fungi from food contribute to human mycoses, which are increasing in a very significant manner. The possibility that filamentous fungi from food, and often investigated by food mycologists, may cause human mycoses, studied by medical mycologists, is a novel concept. There is a lack of awareness of each other’s field. The publications [1,2] were conceived to provide a foundation for further study, which could be updated: Paterson and Lima [2] also contains a large tableofpathogenicfilamentousfungiisolatedfromfoods. Therationaleofthespecialissuewasalsoto provide new data to that provided in [2] which reviewed information only from 2014. [...]
