Cutaneous Lesions Due to Pleurophoma (Phoma) Complex
AbstractABSTRACT: We report a case of striking and disfiguring facial mycosis due to an organism belonging to the Pleurophoma complex of Coelomycetes. This condition was likely acquired through repeated contact with infected soil and exacerbated by prolonged application of topical corticosteroid preparations. Antifungal drug susceptibility testing was used to direct a therapeutic choice in this unusual infection.
