Abstract

Verruconis gallopava is an environmental dematiaceous fungus that is recognized increasingly as a cause of human disease, especially for immunocompromised persons. Infection can range from superficial and localized lesions to pulmonary involvement and disseminated disease, including central nervous system abscesses. Optimal therapy is undefined. We report a patient post cardiac transplant who had pulmonary infection with V gallopava and was treated successfully with posaconazole.
