55 years experience Infectious Disease
Normally uncommon: This is generally a disease which affects immunocompromised individuals. Patients with hiv-aids, those with certain malignancies, or other conditions in which normal host-defenses have been diminished are most affected. Seldom seen in "normal" individuals.
