Fungal arthritis due to Pseudallescheria boydii (Scedosporium apiospermum)

Fungal arthritis due to Pseudallescheria boydii (Scedosporium apiospermum)

Journal of Rheumatology 21(4): 766-768

A case is reported in a previously healthy 53-yr-old man from France who developed destructive suppurative arthritis and osteomyelitis of the knee. Four months earlier, while living in Guadeloupe, the patient had sustained a small puncture wound to the knee. Microscopic examination of synovial fluid showed septate filamentous fungi and S. apiospermum and Graphium anamorphs of P. boydii were cultured.
