U.S. case report of cerebral phaeohyphomycosis caused by Ramichloridium obovoideum (R. mackenziei): criteria for identification, therapy, and review of other known dematiaceous neurotropic taxa
A case is reported in a 36-year-old man originally from Saudi Arabia, who presented in Pennsylvania, USA, in 1995 with a 2-week history of right-hand weakness which worsened to involve the entire upper extremity. On the day prior to his admission, the patient had a focal motor seizure with rotation of the head and eyes to the right, followed by secondary generalization.
