Pulmonary fungal infection caused by Neoscytalidium dimidiatum. Academic Article uri icon


  • Neoscytalidium dimidiatum is a mould known to cause onychomycosis and dermatomycosis; however, it is an extremely rare cause of systemic infection. We report a case of pulmonary infection with Neoscytalidium dimidiatum in an immunocompromised patient and discuss in vitro susceptibility data from this case and previous literature.Copyright © 2015, American Society for Microbiology.
