A fungus is defined as a parasitic plant lacking chlorophyll and leaves and true stems and roots and reproducing by spores. Another definition of fungus is to denote a group of eukaryotic protists, including mushrooms, yeasts, rusts, molds, smuts, etc., which are characterised by the absence of chlorophyll and by the presence of a rigid cell wall composed of chitin, mannans and sometimes cellulose. See the bottom of the page for a definition of protists. Except for fungus that invade the skin and moist tissues such as the vagina, generally a fungus grows in the human body mostly when the host’s immune system is not functioning at its best. This could be in those who have diabetes, are on medicines that damage the immune system, or those who have more serious conditions such as HIV or AIDS.
