Mycotoxicosis are acute diseases caused by mycotoxins, which are secondary metabolites produced by certain filamentous fungi (e.g., Aspergillus flavus, A. parasiticus, Fusarium spp. etc.) belonging to the phylum Ascomycota [1-3]. Depending on the type of toxin, and its quantity, as well as the age, sex, length of exposure and the immune status of the exposed person, mycotoxicosis can be carcinogenic, mutagenic, neurotoxic, hemorrhagic etc. [4-6]. Furthermore, the severity of the mycotoxicosis can be compounded by factors such as malnutrition, other infectious diseases, and alcohol abuse [7].
