Systemic mycosis caused by a new Cladophialophora species



Systemic mycosis caused by a new Cladophialophora species



Journal of Medical and Veterinary Mycology 33(5): 349-354



A 22-year-old woman suffered from haemoptyses of unknown aetiology. A tumour in the lingula was diagnosed histologically to be a granulomatosis, most likely a sarcoidosis. Two years later, the patient returned with dyspnoea caused by a granulomatous tumour in the trachea, histologically similar to that seen earlier. After bronchoscopic laser resection, cortisone therapy was applied but without success. A fungus was subsequently discovered histologically and was cultivated from biopsy specimens. Retrospective research of primary histological slides led to the conclusion that a mycosis was the initial cause of the tumours. The mycosis was successfully treated with high-dose itraconazole for 1 year, combined with 5-fluorocytosine (5-FC) during the first few months. The causative agent was found to be a new species of Cladophialophora, and is described as C. arxii Tintelnot; its key characteristics are presented.
