Abstract

Apophysomyces elegans is an environmental fungus related to other well-known agents of zygomycosis. We report a case of locally invasive A elegans soft tissue infection resulting from the application of a skin patch to test for snapdragon sensitivity. The infection was limited to skin and soft tissue, and treatment consisted of local débridement and liposomal amphotericin B. Outcome was successful.
