Does exposure to mold spores related to vasculitis in nervous system?

my husband came in contact with a gram negative bacteria in a manhole where he was working. He has been diagnosed with central nervous system vasculitis. The mold specialist and 2 other drs. think there could very well be a connection since he was extremely healthly and the fatigue and headaches showed up 5 weeks after the ingestion of the mold spores. what is your opinion?

Thank you for your contact to healthcare magic.
I understand your health concern, if I am your doctor I suggest you that there is no connection between the two. He may be infected with fungal infection but, vasculitis in brain may be related to some other cause. Kindly investigate other causes by visiting the nearby doctor and take treatment accordingly.

I will be happy to answer all your future concern.
Thank you,
