Allergies like Asthma, contact urticarial, bronchial problems, skin problems, hay fever, and common allergies are caused by fungal spores. Allergic proteins present in the fungal spores are responsible for the cause of these allergies. Isolation of fungi was done by exposed culture plates   from three selected areas viz vegetable market area, surrounding area of factories and Government school of Pandurangapuram village, Khammam district, Telangana, India. Isolation was done from three different areas in order to study the variation in the fungal succession. Altogether 76 species32 genera were isolated from these areas. Aspergillus, Alternaria, Pencillium, Rhizopus, Mucor, Fusarium were commonly isolated. The present study infer/ showed that maximum fungal spores which are saprophytic, pathogenic and toxigenic were isolated from the market area. Wood rotting fungi were isolated from the industrial area.

Keywords: Fungal spores, Allergens, Aerospora,Human diseases, Khammam district.
