According to doctors in the area of louisiana there is a species of fungus 
that infects human lung tissue. An X ray radiograph reveals white spots 
that look like cancerous leasions when they are inface fungal colonies.

I was wondering what the species and comman name for this fungus is, If it 
can be erradicated from the body and how, and what sort of relationship 
does it have with it's host like parasitism ?
