Macrophages, along with neutrophils and lymphocytes, are regularly observed within the chronic granulomatous lesions of CBM patients, displaying different degrees of maturation and activation, and they also form multinucleated giant cells that harbor fungi 29 Inhibitory effect of melanin on the interaction of Fonsecaea pedrosoi with mammalian cells in vitro.


Taken together, these results indicate that ecto-phosphatase, besides its possible functions in the biology of fungal cells, may contribute to the adhesion of F.
